Veronika Using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter
Roomy but cozy, oversized but oh, so effortless—Veronika was designed by our friend Shannon Cook! Knit all in one piece, this cocoon cardigan is a quintessentially comfy layer. With a wide shawl collar and a body textured by purl ridges, Veronika warms you right up while offering casual cool style.
We think one of our favorite woolen-spun yarns, Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, is perfect for this cozy cardigan. Worsted-weight and spun from 100% Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia fleece, Shelter is multi-talented. Not only does it have beautiful stitch definition, it achieves the characteristic lofty spring beloved in woolen-spun yarns. And Brooklyn Tweed’s extensive color range of heathered solids makes it easy for you to find your favorite!
This garment is designed with a large amount of ease. Please choose the size closest to your actual full bust measurement (the circumference of the widest part of your bust).
To fit bust: 30-38 (40-46, 48-54)"/76-96.5 (102-117, 122-137)cm
