Pink Velvet [Andrea Mowry]

9 items left

Pink Velvet by Andrea Mowry- This sweater came about when Andrea was travelling to teach a class when she spotted the yarn for this sweater - the same colourway, but on two very different bases. Andrea was immediately inspired and knew she wanted to put them to use in a beautiful colourwork yoke. The texture of the Melted Suri adds a romantic, vintage feel to this circular yoke pullover. Worked from the top down seamlessly, you can try Pink Velvet on as you go and adjust lengths to suit your personal style!
