How lucky we are to be able to take beautiful yarn and give it shape, structure and a purpose. With Menhir, I took a favourite shop-bought sweater, one I wear multiple times a week, and designed this hand knit version. I kept the comfy drop shoulders, wide neckline and generously long sleeves, but added an all over texture for dimension and interest. The result is a luxuriously simple, elegantly comfortable sweater - a new favourite on my shelf.
