Description

Designed by Véronik Avery for Brooklyn Tweed's Gansey Collection, the Fairweather is a playful, feminine pullover. Knit in Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter, the Fairweather features an airy, flared skirt that visually narrows the hips, while traditional lace motifs leaven the classic gansey texture. You will work the body in the round to the underarms, and then knit the upper front and back flat. Exaggerated drop shoulders create an embellishment at the upper arm, and short-row gussets shape the upper shoulders and neckline. Brooklyn Tweed considers this sweater a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and sizes, please click Product Details, above.
