Description

What is better than a top-down raglan pullover with beautiful details like a bit of lace and a curved hem to make a wonderfully drapey yarn
shine? Not much, if you ask us. The Diopside sweater adds extra-long and snuggly cuffs as well as side panels to the mix, and has the potential to become your new favourite sweater for cosy winter nights. Especially if you knit it in one of Triskelion Yarn’s fabulous deep jewel tones!
