This gorgeous new sweater pattern by Andrea Mowry (Drea Renee Knits) is perfect for learning and practicing new techniques! Have fun playing with colour and texture - and this pullover has got it all! A classic circular yoke sweater that helps build your knitting skill set with simple two colour brioche and stranded colour work.
Written for Le Petit Cashmere & Lambswool by Biches & Buches (Main Colour) with Spincycle yarn for the contrast, we've substituted the Spincycle for our gorgeous Yarn Hero, Riverknits Chimera and Uneek Fingering yarns because they are super gorgeous together.
You could also use Le Petit Lambswool for the Main Colour if the cashmere stretches the budget too far.
