Brooklyn Tweed

Tamarack, For Him

Description

Designed by Jared Flood for the Brooklyn Tweed Fall 2016 collection, Tamarack, for Him is a handsome smoking jacket-style cardigan, knit up in Quarry. Overall moss stitch creates a gentle texture that shows off Quarry’s flecks and striations, and a straight torso with raglan shoulders makes Tamarack easy to wear. Choose between a simple ribbed buttonband or a shawl collar shaped with short rows. Optional patch pockets complete the look.
