I wanted to create a design that would be fun and stylish to wear for a walk in the country or a Sunday brunch date in town. A yummy blend of extrafine merino, cashmere, and royal alpaca makes the motifs pop. The Bell, Triple Cable, and Bobble Motif down the center was inspired by Gothic churches and architecture. This motif requires a raised increase stitch to make the bobbles and the upper loop of the top bell.
