Tweed Is Still the New Black

DESCRIPTION

My love affair with garter stitch and tweed continues with Tweed Is Still the New Black.

Tweed Is Still the New Black is a relaxed sweater dress worked from the top down in fingering-weight yarn. This raglan-sleeved and tunic-length garment is a comfortable, comforting companion on cool days. Waist shaping worked at front and back pieces gives you a flattering hourglass look while the generously A-lined hem allows for comfort of movement.

Ever-practical set-in pockets and subtle garter-stitch accents give this understated sweater dress some visual interest. Worn over a pair of leggings or skinny jeans, Tweed Is Still the New Black will become a wardrobe staple.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Only written instructions are provided.
