Inspired by the leaves in the forest, and the river that runs through it. This cozy sweater in soft wool is knitted in one piece, from cuff to cuff - sideways!
The continuous double cable runs up the sleeve, and splits for shaping the neckline. A relaxed, but elegant and modern sweater with a loose fit. The garter stitches are created by simply knitting back and forth on the needle. Easy and fun to knit.
