The FIELD henley is a cozy, fitted sweater that can be worn alone or layered under your favourite plaid shirt. The henley is knit in pieces from the bottom up, then seamed together before completing the placket and collar.

Version 1 is knit in Brooklyn Tweed LOFT and makes a lightweight, wooly fabric ideal for warmth and layering with soft edges.

Version 2 is knit in Ancient Arts Yarn Socknado and makes a snug sweater with more defined edges, and is perfect for showing off different hand-dyed yarns.

Both versions are included in this pattern!
