Andrea Mowry’s Weekender Light is a fingering-weight, summer version of her popular worsted-weight sweater. The drop shoulders, faux seams, and reverse stockinette texture are combined with a generous amount of positive ease. Knit in Brooklyn Tweed’s Loft (100% Targhee-Columbia), a woolen-spun yarn that provides structure without weight, Weekender Light is flattering and easy to wear.
The Weekender Light is available in 10 sizes and is designed to be worn with 10” positive ease. The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment. To achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is 10" larger than your chest measurement.
