Designed by Michele Wang for Brooklyn Tweed's Gansey Collection, the Vanora is a featherweight interpretation of the gansey, entirely feminine with a slight A-line shape and flattering details. You will work all pieces flat from the bottom up and sew them together. Modified drop shoulders delineated by cables are attractive at the upper arm, while bracelet-length stockinette sleeves keep the look simple and understated. Brooklyn Tweed considers the Vanora a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
