Swans Island Alden designed by Stacey McCrea Warner is a comfortable v-neck, short sleeve pullover with a simple cable pattern that runs down the center front and back. The garment is knit from the bottom up, and stitches are cast on for the sleeves using the backward loop method. This piece is one you will reach for time and time again. Knit in Swans Island Washable Wool Sport, a soft, lofty Merino wool yarn that’s organic, earth-friendly, and machine washable. The squishy hand-dyed yarn is made with fine GOTS-certified organic Merino wool fibers treated with Ecowash®, an organic enzyme that prevents felting.
