HELEN METCALFE’S jumper has a
classic, round-necked shape with
set-in sleeves. It feels special thanks to
the use of a luxurious yarn and a smart
stitch pattern. This features knot stitch
motifs on columns of twisted stitches,
worked on a background of reverse
stocking stitch. The Plump yarn from
Mrs Moon is aptly named - it’s a soft and
squidgy mix of merino and baby alpaca,
and feels wonderful next to the skin.
It comes in 19 tempting colours.
