Skiddaw

A reversible design worked with a generous amount of positive ease to create a feminine and oversized silhouette. A striking cable design sweeps along the sleeves and across the neck meaning that this is a sweater to make a statement, even on those days we feel quiet and cosy. Seductive from the start, this interesting shape is created by working flat, in one piece, from cuff to cuff before a little seaming to finish. This unusually constructed garment is designed for a fun knit with clear and easy to follow instructions throughout. Designed to be worn with 40-53 cm (15-21 in) positive ease at bust. You may find it helpful to refer to the cuff and circumference to find the most suitable size.
