All that you need on cold winter or autumn days: comfort, warmth and many charming cables cheering you up! Secret of Life is a casual sweater, with a convenient shape fitting every body shape. When made from alpaca, it will warm and tuck you in, while being pleasantly light.

Most of instructions in this pattern are depicted with charts. For your convenience, each size has its own file, with instructions only for the given size. You won’t have to search for instructions on complicated charts nor print many irrelevant information! Just pick your size and knit without distractions!

Despite cables, Secret of Life is intuitive and easy to work, and cabling is very satisfying. I promise, that before you join front and back, you’ll learn the construction and location of every cable!

The pattern is available in English and Polish.
