Feature Pattern of the Week - Mellbreak

Mellbreak by Becky Baker
The Fibre Co. Lore, colors (A)Confident, (B)Pensive, (C)Caring, (D)Serene

This week we are showcasing a new Fall design from the The Fibre Co. The Mellbreak by Becky Baker is a comfy, chic gradient pullover knit in The Fibre Co. Lore. A very achievable knit, the piece is knit seamlessly from the bottom up in simple garter stitch. The gradient is just four colors & a clever striping design! With minimal shaping, Mellbreak is perfect for beginners, as well as more seasoned knitters. It is a great pullover for layering.

The pullover was designed & knit in Lore, a woolen-spun, DK weight yarn spun in West Yorkshire, England from 100% Romney lambswool. This wool has a heritage feel & knits into garments that have beautiful stitch definition.

Here are the details on what you need to start knitting:
