The Oliver jumper is beautifully textured and worked in the round. The 100% wool yarn is a dream – North Massam Jarol Aran, born, bred and spun in Yorkshire. It makes this a soft and warm alternative to a winter jacket and, being wool, it will even keep you dry on a wet day! Perfect for a walk in the woods.

Embracing an organic Staghorn cable which continues into its beautifully edged hood (no seams or picked up sts), the seamlessly shaped saddle shoulders carry the staghorn cable easily up the arms. Because I think jumpers should have options, this one has plenty. Mix and match to make your perfect version.

  • Don’t like pullovers? Knit the zipper cardigan version.
  • Want some pockets? There are some interesting pockets with unusual diagonal construction that you can easily add – either a full pouch pocket as most hoodies have, or individual side pockets for your cardigan version.
  • Don’t like hoods? Try it with the collar.

Want a women’s version of this? Check out Olivia!
