Mackworth Sweater pattern by Drea Renee Knits

The Mackworth Sweater by Drea Renee Knits was originally a personal project she created for herself, and we’re so excited she publicised this pattern for us to try too!

This sweater was a little gift to myself last Spring. I designed it as I went and it filled me right up! I hope it fills you up too and that when you wear it, you get a big ol’ dose of self love! Knit from the top down seamlessly, you can try it on as you go to get the right fit for you! – Andrea Mowry

We stock yarn bundles in Andrea original colourway here, as well as single skeins of Ritual Dyes Maven if you’d like to create your own colourway.
