Fenchurch is inspired by modern urban architecture, with wrapped stitch ladders to create bold lines. The textured sections are knitted in moss stitch. To keep the tension of the sections even, the moss stitch sections are worked in short rows.

The button band is knitted as part of the fronts in moss stitch. Shaping for the neck is worked in a line of decreases that follow on from the first wrapped stitch ladder. This enhances the wide neckband and the moss stitch upper body.

The optional belt features two wrapped stitch ladders with a moss stitch centre section. The cuffs are made in a similar way and added after the sleeves are complete.

Fenchurch is knitted in Cascade 220 Aran, 100% Peruvian Highland wool. The lovely blue shade is Marine, 8339.
