The Arctic Light Sweater is a gorgeous cable knit sweater with intricate patterns on the front, back and sleeves. It’s worked top down on 5 mm (US8) needles with one strand of merino together with one strand of silk mohair to give it a lustrous sheen. The length is slightly cropped which makes it the perfect companion to wear with high waisted jeans or a dress.

Tip! Choose a lighter colour to make the cables really stand out. If you’re going to make the effort, you may as well show it off!
