Cherry Bark is a classic slipover designed by Sarah Hatton in our wonderfully full yarn Arranmore Light. The design features a textured stitch pattern across the back and comes with two neck options. The first option is a roll neck with a plain stocking stitch front, and the second option shown here is a wide crew neck with a front texture panel.
Cherry Bark is the first pattern from The Almanac Series, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns. This collection will feature a new design every month, each in a different yarn according to the qualities of the yarn to match the season.
