Pattern Crush - Zweig by Caitlin Hunter

Our pattern crush this week is the beautiful Zweig by Caitlin Hunter.  This stunning piece uses a mixture of lace, texture and colourwork to create an eye-catching design.  The relaxed fit and whole look gives the sweater a very modern feel; it is the perfect canvas for having fun with colour! 

This week we have dyed colours inspired by this wonderful design.  We have paired together colourways which we think would make the perfect Zweig sweater.  We have selected two yarn bases, Top Draw Sock and Uptown Sock.  Here are our suggested combos:



From the top (L-R)

  • Slate and Graphite (Top Draw Sock)
  • Barley and Confetti (Top Draw Sock)
  • Tres Chic and Neon & Grey (Top Draw Sock)
  • Wintertide and Dandelion (Top Draw Sock)
  • Metropolis and Pollen (Top Draw Sock)
  • Zorba and Paintbox (Uptown Sock)
  • Paparazzi and Milky Way (Uptown Sock)
  • Night Owl and Blush Crush (Uptown Sock)
  • Graphite and Speckled Mint (Uptown Sock)
  • Sterling and Phosphorescent (Uptown Sock)

As usual we have listed the colourways separately, giving you the chance to mix and match.  Here's what you'll need for this pattern:
