Meet Bentley, your stylish, comfy, and oh-so-versatile sweater! Choose any two colours and watch the stripes zoom by as you knit in the round in a completely seamless manner. This sweater is made from the top down, starting at the double collar, and then progressing down the neckline with short rows and smooth raglan seams. Designed for a flattering look and total comfort, the yoke is fitted, and the body is looser with rounds of increases at the hemline. After completion, sport it with your favourite jeans, slacks, or a skirt for everyday occasions and living.
The Bentley sweater is knitted using our versatile 2-ply &Make DK yarn. The softness of alpaca, the warmth of wool, and the crispness of linen fibres blend together to create the perfect yarn for crisp, cosy projects.
