Brooklyn Tweed - Fabiola Pullover

Designed by 
Gudrun Johnston

A simple silhouette — trim sleeves and gentle A-line waist shaping — serves as the ideal canvas for Fabiola’s irresistible charm of beautifully tessellating, allover colorwork. An endearing piece sure to hone your skills, Fabiola incorporates steeking at the armholes and neckline, a technique that ingeniously allows the mosaic motif to continue uninterrupted in the round, before the remainder of the garment is completed seamlessly. For your background colors, choose closely related shades of Loft for subtle glowing striations at the body, or bolder pairings for eye-catching, contrastive stripes.
