Lunaberry is a precious holiday jumper sprinkled with holly leaves and traditional snowflake motifs that remind me, in this case, of poinsettias. Both plants, of course, are abundant during the holiday season, making this a fabulous holiday project or gift. I love this little sweater. It truly is the result of friendship. The sweater is named after Luna, the daughter of my dear friends, Tamara and Wade. Wade took the photos and named this sweater after Luna (shown modeling it, too!). Finally, my friend Katie made beautiful illustrations that accompany this pattern. Worked in plump, soft, and easy-to-care-for Bella Cash Worsted, the project will fly off your needles.

CONSTRUCTION NOTES
The Lunaberry Jumper is worked circularly from the top-down in one piece. The sleeves are separated from the body at the underarms and worked separately. Mistake ribbing and stranded details decorate the neck edging, hem, and sleeve cuffs. To help stay on track you may wish to place stitch markers between each pattern repeat.
