My modified Tea with Jam and Bread by Heidi Kirrmaier is finished and it fits like a dream. I’m really pleased with the finished product and feel like this will be one of the well worn additions to my wardrobe.

Here’s how I did it: I love the neckline of this pattern, so I used it as a base for my yoke. My stripes are approximately 2.25 inches wide between every color change and I decided on a split hem 2×2 rib at the bottom for a more relaxed fit. This garment is knit in the m1 size and has at least 7 inches of positive ease in the body.

Knit up using perennial favorite Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in the fossil and cast iron color ways, this neutrals sweater is a perfect fit for my sweater wardrobe. I definitely will use this pattern again in the future as a good top down modifier–the yoke takes on a square like quality because of the short row shaping at the neckline for a higher back (great for fit!).

Here are my project notes. Should I make one in a solid gray with pockets on front?
