Abbeyhill
Meet your new favourite sweater for autumn. Deeply textured cables and a swingy, slightly cropped shape that you’ll love layering over… just about everything, whether it’s pjs on long weekend mornings, or a maxi-dress or dramatic trousers when you finally decide to get dressed. Worked bottom up, seamlessly, with a fun cable pattern followed by plenty of soothing stockinette. The spoke yoke is borrowed from a beloved ready to wear sweater, and features feathered decreases for a subtle design detail, that’s also intuitive to knit and sits just-right around your shoulders.

Yarn
Sport weight yarn with good elasticity, wool or wool blends are ideal.

Optional techniques

background.

Screen readers:
The low vision version is tagged to work with screen reading software and have been tested. Images have alt text. Abbreviations are used in the directions, they are defined but may be read aloud oddly. Numbers for multiple sizes are presented as lists of numbers within the text and may be difficult to keep track of when using a screen reader. If this is something you use we’d love your feedback on how we could improve the pattern formatting for screen readers.
