Brooklyn Tweed | NOLAN

£9.00

A boxy silhouette and a surface design of cabled chevrons add up to a graceful layering piece. Stockinette sleeves keep the focus on the motif of tiny cables, which is charted and easy to read from the knitting. The pert collar begins in double rib but finishes in a stockinette roll as a simple but elegant counterpoint to the width of the body. Nolan is worked in Arbor for beautiful definition and midweight warmth.

Designed by Julie Hoover
