Brooklyn Tweed Svenson
A handsomely cabled pullover is never out of style, and a long-wearing mid-weight yarn is the perfect choice for a sweater to see you through the decades. At first glance, Svenson appears to be composed of traditional Aran motifs, but the honeycomb texture of the central panels incorporates purl stitches to unusual effect, and the flanking horseshoe cables playfully experiment with scale. A moss stitch ground and half-twisted rib edges complete the study in textures, putting Arbor through all its paces. The flat-knit pieces are carefully shaped to form a yoke that’s part raglan, part saddle shoulder, ensuring a tailored and comfortable fit.
