This drop shoulder sweater is my most favorite addition to my handmade wardrobe! When Brooklyn Tweed came out with their line of marls for Shelter, I knew I needed a marled sweater. I combined my favorite attributes - texture, faux seams, drop shoulder, and some positive ease to create this versatile, flattering sweater! No matter your body type, it is perfect for wearing to the office or out on your weekend hike in the woods. I’ve already knit a second version, leaving off the sleeves so I can wear it in warmer weather or layered over a long sleeve tee!
Shown in a size Small with 10” positive ease.
Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed SHELTER. A suggested substitute is below.
Techniques: Tubular cast on, tubular bind off, slipped stitches, ribbing, working inside out, picking up stitches, short rows, three needle bind off.
I bought cascade 220 yarn. The wool is lovely. My only complaint is, instead of a ball, it comes in a long loop and it tangles very easily. As I have not used wool like this before I don't know if I am supposed to wind it in to a ball first or if I am just pulling the wrong end
