Blea Rock


Blea Rock is a slouchy pullover that is both fun to knit and easy to wear. Knitted in Lore, the rhythmic smocking stitch and relaxing stocking stitch allow the rustic, lofty nature of the yarn to shine. This classic sweater is worked in pieces from the bottom up and seamed for strength and stability.
