For her first sweater design, Hanna Lisa was inspired by Art Nouveau lines and the desire to create a modern, geometric colourwork yoke.

The neck shaping used in Keeping You Warm lets the neckline sit slightly higher at the back, while the top-down construction allows you to knit it exactly to the dimensions you prefer.

Garthenor‘s DK-weight yarn was a match made in heaven with its excellent properties for colourwork and beautiful natural shades.
