Ghost Horses by Caitlin Hunter (pattern)

Ghost Horses is a top-down circular yoke sweater featuring all-over stranded colourwork by Caitlin Hunter. This knit uses Spincycle Yarns in Wilder and Dyed in the Wool.

This sweater was a dream I have had in my mind for a few years; I love the ring of horses galloping across the yoke, and the fading colors of Spincycle’s Dirty Little Secret against their solid light grey Wilder was the perfect match for my western dream sweater! The pattern is written to be easily customizable in sleeve and body length. Options are given for short or long sleeves (or elbow length, like mine!) – Caitlin Hunter

The original colourway of Dyed in the Wool used was ‘Dirty Little Secret’, a limited edition colourway no longer available. Spincycle recommends Ghost Ranch or Rusted Rainbow if you’d like to replicate Caitlin’s sample – Ghost Ranch being pinker and Rusted Rainbow being more orange.
