Combine two tweedy shades and two stitches to make this traditional round neck sweater from our British Heritage collection. Simple garter stitch shows off the tweedy nep of this classic yarn and ensures your mis-matched sleeves will knit up quickly. Ribbed tweed stitch adds texture to the body in both the plain and striped quarters. A fun knit that's sure to attract compliments.
Knitting Level: Intermediate
You will also need: 1 Pair of 4mm (UK8 - USA6) Knitting Needles, 1 Pair of 3¼mm (UK10 - USA3) 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.
