A lighter-weight sweater for wearing indoors or out, Stonehaven’s smart-casual styling and subtle texture stitch on the sleeves and upper body make this a very versatile and easy to wear piece.

This is a classically styled sweater with set-in sleeves and a V-neck, which will work well with either a casual t-shirt worn underneath, or a smarter collar and tie.

Stonehaven is an easy, but satisfying knit, described as ‘classic with a twist’ by one of my testers.

It’s worked flat in four pieces so that the seaming adds stability for long-lasting style.

The pattern is fully written out and there are full instructions for working the neckband.

New from June 2020: Melrose, a round neck version of this pattern, is included within a purchase of Stonehaven, giving you a choice of necklines.
