The Throwback pattern by Drea Renee Knits

The Throwback cardigan by Drea Renee Knits aka Andrea Mowry uses Spincycle Yarns in Dream State to make a lovely geometric pattern around the garment. We created ours using North Light Fibers’ Atlantic for the main base colour which gives a fantastically cosy feel.

‘This sweater was inspired by my childhood and weekends spent in northern Michigan on the sand dunes. It is my favorite cardigan for layering and keeping warm all Autumn and Winter long! This sweater is worked flat from the top down, seamlessly, except for the sleeves which are knit in the round.’Andrea Mowry
