Birch Bark by Amy Herzog

Birch Bark was one of the special retreat designs from my first make. wear. love. sweater retreat, in 2013. It's a fitted pullover with a boat neck, 3/4 sleeves, and a graphic cable panel, worked up in a delicious hand-painted worsted yarn. This has been one of the most popular designs in my traveling sweater suitcase for years, and I'm thrilled to bring it to CustomFit.

Birch Bark is worked with hourglass waist shaping. The sleeves are slightly belled, with a cable panel that removes the bell via decreases. I strongly recommend you work this sweater in a worsted-weight yarn to retain the scale of the original sample. (Slightly lighter than worsted weight is preferable to slightly heavier.)
