Adventures need handknits. They especially need handknits that are scrumptiously warm and fit fabulously, with set-in sleeves, cables and plenty of twisted ribbing!

Wayfarer is your sweater for wandering, pottering and discovering. She’s wonderfully versatile, useful in a myriad of adventures, and includes two options for sleeve length. She looks excellent cropped and longer line, fitted or worn more loosely.

Knitted from the top, Wayfarer perfectly combines DK yarn and everyday style. She uses set-in short-row sleeves and clever detailing for a smooth flow from cable to rib, and you’ll feel oh so special snuggled in your beautifully finished knit.

Including charts and written instructions, Wayfarer is suitable for knitters from adventurous beginners to experienced.
