Cherry Bark is a classic slipover designed by Sarah Hatton in The Fibre Co wonderfully tweedy yarn Arranmore Light. This is the garment you’ll pull on for a walk on the first crisp Autumn morning and again when the sun begins to lower in the lingering evening light.
The design features a textured stitch pattern across the back and comes with two neck options. The first option is a roll neck with a plain stocking stitch front, shown in this pattern in shade St. Claire, and the second option is a wide crew neck with a front texture panel, shown in shade Brannagh.
Cherry Bark is the first design as part of the Almanac Series, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns.
