The fella made me do it! After the cardigan I designed for him as part of my Highland collection, he demanded a new pullover for Winter. His brief included a roll neck, cables down the front and a deep green colour, the rest was up to me. We are both thrilled with this sweater as it fits like a glove, is super-snuggly to wear and looks FABULOUS!! There is a small stripe detail on the right sleeve - this is optional and may be omitted if preferred.Worked from the neck down and in the round, Centaurus is completely seamless and looks great on both Men and Women – Hoorah!
