Description

Julie Hoover combines her stunning use of color work and clever engineering for Brooklyn Tweed’s Yoke Collection. Worked from the bottom up in five shades of Loft, the yoke of this sweater combines a unique hybrid of raglan and round-yoke decreases to create a striking design with a flattering fit. Brooklyn Tweed considers Townes a level 4 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
