"Zweig is a fingering weight yoke sweater worked from the top down featuring lace, colourwork and texture on the body. I love the relaxed beauty of a yoke sweater, and the way the drape of fingering weight yarn is flattering and comfortable at the same time. As a mom of 3 extremely busy boys, clothing that allows me to stay stylish without sacrificing comfort is worth its weight in gold- I hope you like it too!"
