The Design

"A classic in Irish tweed."

This timeless sweater combines the relaxed ease of a modified drop shoulder with a slightly shaped shoulder line and gently sloped sleeve cap—the saddle tab squares it all up. The classic crew neck has a relaxed fit so it looks handsome over a collared shirt or a tee. And she’ll love its slouchy weekend comfort, too.

In Tahki Donegal Tweed, a 100% pure wool yarn made in Ireland, this pullover is sturdy enough for outdoor work and polished enough when out to dinner. This worsted weight yarn is warm and naturally breathable, and the traditional tweedy fabric we love. Knit in pieces and seamed using mattress stitch, the neck band is picked up and knit in the round.

Pattern is filled with technique support and photo tutorials that will carry you right through this project as well as serve you for many projects to come. From detailed swatching instructions for garment success to customizing the size just for him, seaming and shoulder shaping tooa true primer!
