Five College Sweater
From pattern: Our lovely valley in Massachusetts is sometimes referred to as “The Five College Area,” due to the close proximity of Smith, Amherst, University of Massachusetts, Hampshire and Mt. Holyoke colleges. Students at any one of these colleges can take classes at any of the other four, making the depth and variety of the academic body astounding. This sweater is an homage to the special unity of these five wonderful schools.
Made with a clever top-down construction, this oversized, Guernsey-inspired sweater features five different textural motifs and a unisex design that’s both modern and classic. And the yarn is so, so soft!
