Designer Andrea Mowry’s most requested item? A lighter-weight version of her wildly popular worsted-weight sweater, The Weekender. The Weekender Light brings the same easy-wearing design in fingering-weight Loft from Brooklyn Tweed. Along with the lighter weight yarn, and a few other adjustments to the original pattern, the Weekender Light pattern boasts 10 sizes from 36″ to 72″ finished bust circumference.
Loft is Brooklyn Tweed’s fingering-weight, woolen-spun 100% American Targhee-Columbia yarn, grown spun and dyed in the U.S.
Note: Kit includes the yarn only. Weekender Light pattern is not included but can be purchased directly from the designer on Ravelry right here.
The Weekender Light is intended to be worn with approx. 10”/25.5 cm positive ease. To pick your best size, measure your full bust and add your desired ease, then pick the finished bust circumference closest to that number. Sample shown in size 2 with approx. 10”/25.5 cm positive ease.
