Need a little something to layer over a shirt or under a jacket but don't want it bunching at the elbows? Try out this nifty vest with a neck detail inspired by the mitred joints of woodworking. The sweater is worked from the bottom up in one piece, with stitches added and worked for the cap sleeves as you go. Stitches are picked up at the neck edge and worked toward the center for the geometric neck detail. Boardwalk is designed to be worn with 1-2" of ease. Finished chest measurements are 30 (32.75, 34.5, 36.5, 38.5, 41, 44.25, 48)" with finished back lengths of 20.25 (21, 21, 21.75, 22.25, 22, 22, 22)". The sweater can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this Heidi Kirrmaier design a skill level rating of 3 out of 5.
Woodfords uses Brooklyn Tweed's fingering weight wool called Loft. Loft is a woolen-spun wool that has a soft, fuzzy texture after wet blocking and makes a warm sweater that is lightweight for its volume.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 32" circular needle in US size 3 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
If you adjusted the size above to get gauge, adjust the needles below correspondingly.
- 24" circular needle in US size 3 (same size as above)
- 5 stitch markers
- 2 removable markers
- waste yarn or stitch holders
- tapestry needle
Boardwalk is shown in Loft color 102 Woodsmoke. If you would like your sweater to be in this color, simply order the kit above using the pull-down menu to select your size. If you would like to pick your own color, see our Loft page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your color choice in the box above.
