Worked in pieces and seamed with shawl collar and pockets added during finishing, the Greenbanks Hollow Cardigan puts ribbing to use in a way that reminds us of the standing seam roof covered bridge spanning Joe’s Brook, all that is left of the once-thriving milltown of Greenbanks Hollow. The rich color and beautiful drape of Green Mountain Spinnery’s worsted weight Alpaca Elegance make this a cardigan you will want to snuggle into every day.
