A trim fitting pullover with a slightly high waist, shaped with 4x4 ribbing and cabled motifs on the body. The body is worked in the round to the armpits, when the sleeve holes are shaped and the body is divided and worked separately for the front and back. The long ribbed sleeves also feature cabled motifs over ribbing, and are knit in the round up to the underarms, and then the sleeve caps are shaped. The shallow V-neckline is worked with a 4x4 ribbing as well. Women’s sizes available: 32 (34, 36, 40, 42, 44, 48)”.

Inspiration: Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt, and twin sister of Apollo, was represented in art and statuary with her bow and arrow. A powerful symbol of women, she was one of the most revered Greek deities. Often depicted as a huntress, she was also the protector of young women and wild animals.
