Another favorite designed by Michele Wang. Several of us tried this light-weight layering piece on when the Brooklyn Tweed trunk show was in the shop. It's on the needles! Because fingering-weight Loft is so lofty—the magic of woolen-spun—you can knit it at sport gauge without losing fabric integrity. Michele worked her design flat with seams for a little structure and added turned-hem detailing for a little more finish. (If you substitute another yarn, you should probably choose a true sport weight.) Subtle braided cables emerge at rising heights from the hemline to wrap around one side of the body. Clever, clever, clever!
