  • Brackendale - Sweater

    Brackendale is the cabled, textured sweater of our dreams: Inspired by the desire to create a piece that would one day be kept and cherished by her future family, Fiona turned to her trusted knitting books as she would love to not only pass on sweaters, but also her love for and knowledge of knitting.

    The result is a stunning all-over textured sweater with exchange cables being featured front and center. It is worked from the bottom up and in pieces.

    The front and back feature similar exchange cable panels, albeit in slightly different configurations, which are echoed on the sleeves in smaller cables running along the sleeve sides.
