This light cropped pullover is worked in a fingering weight mix of merino wool with linen. In this design I used stranded colourwork with floats on the right side in a pattern inspired by majestic Protea flowers around the yoke and hemline and a delicate lace ribbing along the neck, cuffs and hem. The pullover is worked top down in the round.
