Brooklyn Tweed | KIRIGAMI

£9.00

A beautiful geometric design graces the shoulders of this classic round yoke with sinuous lines and purled acorn caps at diminishing scale. Gentle waist shaping and carefully placed short rows ensure a comfortable fit, and a generous neckline adds to the comely, face-framing effect. This is a pullover to knit in your signature color, and Arbor’s nuanced palette offers ample selection.

Designed by Gudrun Johnston
