Jesper, featuring Woolfolk’s SNO or TYND yarn, is worked circularly from the bottom hem and sleeve cuffs to underarms, then divided and worked flat. The diamond pattern, which is worked on the front and back, makes a soft geometric statement. The pattern includes two sleeve length options (elbow-length and full-length). The cable is worked from chart instructions only.
