For the untrammeled outdoorsman or urban minimalist, this is Brooklyn Tweed’s take on a perennial masculine favorite, the thermal Henley. Sawyer is worked in Shelter with a plush and textural fabric created by knitting into the row below. Set-in sleeves and seamed construction make this a long-wearing classic. Choose a tried-and-true menswear shade like Artifact or Almanac, go moody with Stormcloud, or inject some warm color into his wardrobe with Wool Socks (pictured) or Fauna.


  • 1365 (1510, 1665, 1815, 1980, 2150) yards of worsted weight wool yarn


  • 15 stitches & 40 rows = 4″ in Thermal Texture Stitch with Size A needle(s), after blocking

Size A (for Main Fabric):

  • One pair of straight needles or a 24″ circular needle* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
  • Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)

Size B (for Ribbing):

  • One pair of straight needles or a 24″ circular needle*, one size smaller than Size A
  • Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

Size C (for Placket, Collar, and optional Tubular Cast On):

  • One 24″ circular needle, one size smaller than Size B
  • Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)

Size D (optional; for Tubular Bind Off only):

  • One 24″ circular needle, two sizes smaller than Size B
  • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

*Knitter’s preferred style of needle may be used

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
