Get ready to fall in love.

Gingerbread is your new favourite comfy sweater with a twist and it’s going to make you feel cosy and fabulous, whether you’re curled up with your knitting or heading out into the cold.

Striking chevron bands and a wide, shallow neckline add a feminine touch. The boxy body and slim arms are flattering and easy to wear, and the edges feature a tubular bind off for a really special finish.

Knitted seamlessly from the top, you’ll enjoy soothing, relaxing knitting all the way to the lace and cable bands. Sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeve caps shaped with short rows.

Instructions for the bands are charted.
