A warm vibrant knit with a simple patterned colourwork body contrasted against a bright chest and arm. Like the Honey Badger, a sleek and multi-toned look, accentuating the length of your arms across the chest. A knit to cosy up in, or dress up with a skirt for a winter meeting.
The jumper is knit in the round from the bottom up with waist and bust shaping, a yoke construction and raglan shaping. The body is knit in a two-toned colourwork pattern while the sleeves and yoke are knit in a contrasting solid colour.
The pattern is written for the beautifully soft Indiecita Luxurious 100% Baby Alpaca Yarn. It could be knitted in a lighter 4-ply or sport weight woolly yarn with good structure, or another soft/ silky DK weight yarn.
