The Weekender Crew was born out of the wonderful requests Andrea Mowry received from many knitters in her inbox! Top of the list was always an alternative neckline for those not comfortable in a boat neck, closely followed by a DK weight option and something in a weatherproof yarn! But that wasn't all, Andrea Mowry also decided to extend the dropped shoulders on the sleeves to give it an extra polish, and of course - pockets! The Weekender Crew fills another gap in your wardrobe!
This jumper is knit from the bottom up, seamless, except for a small seam on the underarms. Starting with a split hem, the body is joined in the round and worked like this until the split for the sleeves. The rest is knitted flat and the shoulders are finished with an open seam, knitted using the 3 needle bind off method.
Each wool pack contains the amount of yarn needed to complete the project in the size selected.
