“I created my ideal sweater companion for when I’m getting my hands dirty in the autumn garden. The geometric cable pattern reminds me of the beautiful garden trellises I saw on my last trip to Japan.”
– Jared Flood
The architectural textures of this design are perfectly suited for round, multi-ply yarns with superior stitch definition. Both Tones (3-ply) and Imbue (5-ply) yarns create beautiful fabrics that make the most of all the textural details on this garment.
“Two different rib patterns are used to anchor the strong diagonals of this twisted-stitch fabric. A band and shawl collar are worked in a plush garter rib stitch that creates a sturdy, durable finish with a clean silhouette. The sleeves are wide and relaxed, falling just below the elbow — a true work sweater that lets you get your hands dirty, in the garden, the kitchen, the woodshop, or anywhere else you need to stay warm and cozy without your sweater getting in the way of your hands.” — designer, Jared Flood
