This ultra feminine top-down yoke sweater has just enough detail to wear to work and the right amount of comfort for lounging at home. A classic yoked sweater that plays with purls and knits in the colorwork. The textured thistles are the perfect complement to the neps of Woolstok Tweed. The repeating thistle pattern is seamlessly worked into the yoke while the majority of the body is simple stockinette stitch. Each sleeve includes a touch of colorwork along the cuff, too.
Woolstok Tweed is made from Peruvian Highland Wool, just like traditional Woolstok, but with the added Donegal nips to make a classic tweed.
Kit includes printed & pdf pattern, selected yarn & buttons. Sizes with similar skein counts have been combined for kit purposes only. Pattern includes 9 individual sizes. For Ball Winding services click here.
