Description

Jared Flood aims for the mountaintop with his Peaks sweater! A shawl collar sits atop a color worked pattern of alternating peaks and valleys. Knit in the round and then steeked to create the neckline, Peaks creates a strikingly graphic knit, sure to suit any adventurer. Brooklyn Tweed considers Peaks a level 5 out of 5 in difficulty.
