The Design

"Tailored look and relaxed feel."

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.

Jamieson's Shetland Heather Aran creates a wool-lover's dream fabricwarm yet light-weight, substantial yet breathable. It all starts with the 100% pure Shetland wool, shorn from a diminutive breed of sheep that has stubbornly adapted to the rugged Shetland Isles in the North Sea. The hardy fleece is spun by a fifth generation mill family into a yarn that is springy, lofty and deceptively light weight. Heathered shades are named for the natural elements of the Shetland Isles. A classic design in a yarn five generations in the makingknitter heaven.

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!
