If you're looking for extra warmth from a stylish tweedy knit this season, look no further. Knit this matching funnel neck sweater and scarf from our British Heritage collection, using two ends of double knitting Haworth Tweed together in a double rib to produce a super cosy fabric. If you've not tried this technique before, you could start with the generous scarf to practise without shaping then progress to the sweater with its fully-fashioned raglan sleeves.
Knitting Level: Easy
You will also need: 1 Pair of 5mm (UK6 - USA8) Knitting Needles, 1 Pair of 4mm (UK8 - USA6) Knitting Needles and Stitch Holders.
About This Yarn
The richly-nepped look of popular wool tweeds in a soft merino blend that’s softer and lighter to wear. Named to honour the famous home of the Bronte sisters and a classic British fabric, even our Haworth Tweed shades are named to celebrate the people and places of our Yorkshire home, from Hepworth Slate to West Riding Red.
What's it like to work with?
This woollen spun blend is gentle and beautifully plump making finished knits softer and lighter to wear than pure wool. The rich nep adds interest to simple stitches and sophistication to robust textures and colour-work.
What is it best for?
Warm outdoorsy knits with a Yorkshire spirit (look closely and discover a Yorkshire rose concealed in our fairisle cardigan). Excellent meterage makes stylish knits and larger projects more affordable than yarns with a similar tweedy look.
