Subtle tucked hems create exquisite detail in this pullover knit in gorgeous hand-dyed yarn.

Several years ago, I designed a tea cozy using tucking, a form of knitted pleating, and loved the results. I “tucked” the idea in the back of my mind to use in a garment one day. Tucking takes time and patience and good lighting to be able see the stitches that need to be picked up, but it’s well worth the effort.

Note Tanglewood Fiber Creations Yarns are handspun and hand-dyed in small batches so that hank lengths will vary. Purchase yarns following yard/meter amounts.
