Olivia

The Olivia jumper is beautifully textured and worked in the round, using that reliable classic, Cascade 220, which makes this a soft and warm alternative to a winter jacket. Being wool, it will even keep you dry on a wet day! Perfect for a walk in the woods.

Embracing an organic Staghorn cable, the seamlessly shaped saddle shoulders carry the staghorn cable easily up the arms. Although the patterns may look complicated, they line up together in an easy to remember pattern.

Because I think jumpers should have options, this one has plenty. Mix and match to make your perfect version.

  • Don’t like zippered cardigans? Knit the pullover 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 collars? Try it with the hood.
