Description

Colour blocking with a twist - and tiny jewels as inspiration. The Tourmaline pullover combines an elegant dark upper half with a vibrant band of dark pink, set apart by a line of small turquoise diamonds that are echoed in the zig-zags of the colour block border. The woolly, rustic Shetland yarn by L’Échappée Laine is the perfect match for this sweater - well-suited for colourwork and with a beautiful bloom after blocking.
