A cozy jumper knitted from the top down, with a simple stranded colourwork pattern, princess-line shaping and i- cord edging.

Maiden Pinks have been grown in the gardens of the North for centuries, most commonly in borders or the rockery. The dwarf plants are smothered with dainty white serrated flowers, complemented by an attractive dusky pink eye.
