Cozy up in style with Tweedy Chic! A beautiful accent highlights the neckline on this fall to winter weight sweater. Create that tweed look with one strand of fingering weight (shown in silk) and one strand of worsted weight (shown in cotton) held together. Perfect with leggings; the longer-in-back-shorter-in-front hem sports a surprising accent. Hike the Outer Hebrides in warmth or ice skate in Central Park in New York style.

- Construct It: worked bottom up, this sweater is worked flat for the back hem, then joined in the round for the front hem cast on. At the underarms, the design is again split to work flat until the shoulder 3 needle bind offs. The sleeves are picked up and worked top down creating a completely seamless design, with faux seam details.
- Swatch It: work a generously sized swatch, wash, block, and hang. The overall weight of the sweater affects the final blocked gauge.
