Product Details

Rowan Marchena from Island Blend Fine is inspired by the garter stitch colorwork of traditional Bohus knitting techniques. This cozy pullover is an intriguing knitted sweater that will stand out in any crowd. Marchena is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed. The turtleneck collar stitches are picked up along the neckline edge and knit in the round. Rowan Island Blend Fine is a supremely soft blend of wool, alpaca, and silk in a fingering to sport weight. With its excellent stitch definition and stunning color palette, Island Blend Fine is an excellent choice for all kinds of sweaters and accessories. The striped colorwork is in chart form only.
