Whiskey & Rye

$9.00

I’m a late convert to hand dyed speckles, but I’ve discovered that once the rich flecks of color finally take hold of you, there’s no going back. Whiskey & Rye is a quiet color story told with linear precision. Vertical details cut clean lines through horizons of garter stitch, worked flat (no purling!) and joined neatly down the center front with a simple crocheted slip-stitch edge. With interesting construction that hints at saddle shoulders and shaping that creates a seamless version of set-in sleeves, Whiskey & Rye is a top-down seamless sweater that fits like it was made for you (because it was).

Yarn notes

Creamy, speckled superwash merino creates a landscape that shares the stage with texture details. The recommended yarn will show stitch definition well and will soften and drape slightly with blocking.
