Bennett Creek is a cropped, oversized pullover with an elegant cable on the center front and a back that is 2" longer than the front. It is knit using Luma, a blend of wool, cotton, linen, and silk from the Fibre Co. It is a DK weight yarn that makes a light but warm layer. Luma is dyed to create a subtle tonal effect of light and dark variation, giving a wonderful casual look to the fabric. The Bennett Creek pullover is knit flat, with the front, back, and sleeves worked separately and then sewn together. The cable is worked following a chart. This sweater has been designed to be worn with 8" of positive ease. Finished chest measurements are 35 (39, 43, 47, 51, 55, 59)". The sweater can be hand washed and dried flat. Designed by Kate Gagnon Osborn.
