Waterlands is a circular yoke jumper featuring an abstract colourwork pattern. It is worked in one piece in the round from the top down, and has a relaxed neckline. The pattern was originally published in issue 31 of Pom Pom Quarterly, but has since been updated to include instructions to make either the original relaxed, bracelet length sleeves, as well as standard full length sleeves.
