Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Philodendron in Twist Collective Fall 2015

Her sweater, Philodendron, is beautifully unique in its construction. The front pieces are worked sideways, using short-row shaping, while the sleeves and back are worked bottom up. I don’t think I’ve seen a garment crafted in such a way before. We love the way our bold Pistachio colourway, worked in Trinity Worsted, accentuates the lace. It is a truly flattering, sophisticated piece.
