Verena‘s third design for this collection is a riff on one of her favourite clothing items: A turtleneck sweater!

Garter lines, rib and broken rib textures work together in Cros- sing Paths to create a beautiful all-over textured garment. Thoughtful details are Verena‘s trademark, and she doesn‘t disappoint here: The raglan lines flow seamlessly into the sleeve‘s texture, and the fact that you work the turtleneck last allows you to make it however long you want it. (Same for the body and sleeves, thanks to the top-down construction!)

Blacker Yarns‘ Swan is a wonderful backdrop for all of this squishy texture and we can‘t wait to see your version!
