Humle Sweater Light - a warm and light sweater for the colder days, knitted from the top down in an untreated wool yarn from Yllet Inredning in Visby, Gotlandsgarn 2. This is a thin yarn and I have taken advantage of its ability to bloom to give an airy garment. The lace yoke is easy to knit and the pattern resembles little hop cones (humle in Swedish), hence the name. The sleeves are knitted straight until the cuff, where decreases form a little puff. The longer cuffs give the sweater an elegant finish. I hope that you will like this sweater just as much as I do.
