A Brooklyn Tweed pattern designed by Julie Hoover. The thermal Henley, a perennial favorite for guys, served as Julie’s inspiration for this cozy pullover. Knit in the worsted weight Shelter, Sawyer’s set-in sleeves and seamed construction offer garment integrity and strength while the unique textured fabric lends an understated look. Style over a long sleeved tee or a dress shirt – this pullover is destined to become his fave.
Twelve pages are filled with informative schematics and detailed instructions on techniques such as tubular cast on, stem stitch bind off, and knitting into the row below. And as always, gorgeous photography.
