The Mohawk Wool Sweatshirt

There are so many reasons to love knitting with Mohawk Wool and this pullover is one more. Designer Tonia Barry calls it a sweatshirt but the details make it much more versatile – It can be dressed up or down and worn with anything. With the back just slightly longer than the front, the oversized fit drapes beautifully and the faux-buttoned detail down the back adds elegance.
