Gloriously feminine, this jumper by Pat Menchini uses Celtic-inspired knot cabling to add shape to the waist and wrists. The cable motifs incorporate long sections of ribbing, which will flatter your figure. The fabric feels soft and warm, thanks to the aran-weight yarn from Wendy, called Purity. It’s formed from a cotton chainette with an air-puffed merino wool interior; this unusual construction makes the yarn feel incredibly light and soft.
