Nurtured by Andrea Mowry- Knitwear designer Andrea Mowry wanted a cropped sweater with lots of texture that she could throw on over favourite dresses and tunics or paired with high waisted jeans and skirts! This honeycomb pattern is easy to memorise and rhythmic to knit. Nurtured is knit from the bottom up, mostly in the round, with the only seaming being a few stitches at the underarms.
