Cobblestone pays homage to the rustic, homespun texture of garter stitch. Jared Flood’s first design celebrates simple, timeless details: a round yoke, subtle ridged side panels, and garter edges. The garter yoke lends visual weight to the shoulders for a flattering masculine effect and short rows raise the back for a comfortable fit. The intuitive, circular construction hews to the principles of Elizabeth Zimmermann and makes for a knitting experience as comforting as a cup of hot tea. Cobblestone is a great first sweater and pleasing return to basics for the more experienced knitter. Choose a size that will give you about four inches of ease for a classic fit. Designed by Jared Flood.
