October 26 - Weekender Sweater Workshop

100.00

Join us this fall and knit Andrea Mowry’s Weekender Sweater. She combined her favorite attributes - texture, faux seams, drop shoulder, and some positive ease to create this versatile, flattering sweater! No matter your body type, it is perfect for wearing to the office or out on your weekend hike. She knit a second version, leaving off the sleeves so she can wear it in warmer weather or layered over a long sleeve tee!

The original was knit in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. For the Wollhaus sample we decided to hold Brooklyn Tweed Vale and Shibui Silk Cloud together.
