A modern update for a classic shape takes this sweater from the perfect companion with jeans to something a little special. Hackney Hops takes it name from Belinda's (the designer) favourite craft beer as we celebrate all the things we love about the weekend with this comforting collection of knitwear.
Yarn is held double to add weight and structure to the ribbing before continuing on the main body and sleeves while just holding one end of the yarn. With an emphasis on strong hem lines and worked in pieces before setting in the sleeves and seaming, this is a classic sweater that really goes the extra mile to ensure great fit and a flattering shape. Simple enough for beginners who wish to learn garment construction or a soothing knit for the more experienced knitter who wants a little comfort.
