AN INTRIGUING cable pattern that looks like textured bark gives a smart look to this men’s sweater. Designed by Elly Doyle, it has set-in sleeves, and a collar which is folded over and stitched
to the inside. Elly’s sweater has been knitted in Bluefaced Leicester Aran yarn, which is spun by West Yorkshire Spinners. It feels wonderfully soft,and has an attractive lustre.
