Get the Lumme pullover at -20% until Friday April 30th (midnight Helsinki time), no coupon code needed :) Enjoy!

The Lumme pullover was named after the Finnish word for a water lily. I was inspired by the murky and dark waters of Finnish forest ponds and the contrast they create with white water lilies.

The Lumme pullover is knitted seamlessly top-down starting at the neckband. The sleeves and body are separated at the underarm and knitted separately.

The yoke is knitted in stranded colorwork with increases incorporated into the pattern. Choose 2 colors with enough contrast for the best result.
