Jay Sweater 
Designed by Rachel Brockman 

Named after forest-dwelling jays, this slightly cropped sweater subtly nods to the patterning on their plumage. From scrub jays to blue jays, I’ve always admired the confidence and curiosity of these beautiful birds. Perfect for those curious knitters seeking to boost their colorwork confidence, this straight-forward pullover would be a great first yoked sweater.
