Kaffe Fassett’s famous Tumbling Blocks designs have delighted knitters for many years and his latest interpretation doesn’t disappoint. Kaffe has upscaled his iconic design, using seventeen shades of Felted Tweed. Two shades are held together at any one time, whilst the large blocks are achieved using the intarsia technique. The long-length jacket, with flattering three-quarter length sleeves is knitted all in one piece and is trimmed with a contrasting band. A timeless classic.
