Reminiscent of the colors in an old Polaroid picture, this yoked sweater is a classic piece worked in the round from the top town. Brooklyn Tweed’s Loft yarn creates the perfect palette and provides the crisp detail that makes for a great colorwork sweater. An uncolored chart is included in the pattern if you’d like to create your own custom palette.
