Save to My Favorites

Jared Flood’s Svenson (for Her), worked in crisp Arbor, is a study in texture. Pieces of deep honeycomb paneling, flanked by horseshoe cables, are worked flat from the bottom up and seamed together. The companion piece to Svenson (for Him), this version is scaled down for a closer-fitting proportion. Brooklyn Tweed considers Svenson a level 4 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.
