Product Description

I enjoy playing with different stitch techniques, especially when they start off one way, go into another technique and then, as with this pattern, into another technique again.  So here we have a small rib pattern going into a larger rib pattern then into my favourite cable: a plait cable!  All these lovely techniques make up a gorgeous, comfortable jumper to feel good in!

This pattern is available in my book, Simple Knits, which features 8 patterns using Kilcarra Tweed (aran weight) yarn.

 

I also use the same rib and cable combination in the Portalla’s cushion pattern.
