This pattern is complimentary with the purchase of 11 or more skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Arbor for this project.
For a bold piece that catches the eye from any angle, look no further than Hirst. With subtle grass stitch columns that turn diagonally at the raglan seams, dramatic side vents, and a high-low hemline, this garment is one that playfully entertains while remaining sleek and refined.
This garment in Arbor is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, then sewn together. The rolled neck collar (or optional crew neck collar) is picked up and worked circularly after garment assembly. Incorporated I-Cord is used to finish the open vent edges of the back and front.
