Uncomplicated and effortless to make – unstructured, loose and comfortable. Worked top down, start with the crazy loops in loops, work the increases, the sleeves next and then the collar last. No seams.
Cast-off on a larger size needle to give a lovely stretchy edge. The silk fibre in our yarns makes this special utterly unusual jumper shine.
