Description

Originally designed for Brooklyn Tweed’s children’s collection, Julie Hoover’s Berenice is all grown up. A lovely combination of delicate lace and cables amidst a neutral background of reverse stockinette stitch, Berenice now features long sleeves and a boxier drop-shoulder. Knit flat in pieces from the bottom up, Brooklyn Tweed considers Berenice a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty and offers the pattern as a hard copy only, printed on quality cardstock with full-color images and detailed charts.
