Sheep Camp Sweater by Jennifer Berg

Shelley fell madly, deeply in love with this design when she spotted it in the Instagram feed of Jennifer Berg, aka @nativeknitter who will be featured in the upcoming Knit Stars Masterclass Season 6. Jennifer lives and designs on a Navajo reservation near Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her work is inspired by the beautiful creations of her people, and her color palettes reflect the richness of her culture.

Jennifer designed the Sheep Camp sweater to capture the feeling of a more simple life - the life of her grandmother, who was a shepherdess. The light sweater features a yoke with an arrow design that reminds the wearer to keep breathing, in and out, in and out.

Terra dyed up the PERFECT pale aqua “Frenchmen” for the main color, and two choices for the contrast color: deep blue "Boyfriend Jeans" as seen in Shelley's model, and "Nutshell," a beautiful brown.
