Abbeyhill

Meet your new favourite sweater for autumn. Deeply textured cables and a swingy, slightly cropped shape that you’ll love layering over… just about everything, whether it’s pjs on long weekend mornings, or a maxi-dress or dramatic trousers when you finally decide to get dressed. Worked bottom up, seamlessly, with a fun cable pattern followed by plenty of soothing stockinette. The spoke yoke is borrowed from a beloved ready to wear sweater, and features feathered decreases for a subtle design detail, that’s also intuitive to knit and sits just-right around your shoulders.

The Abbeyhill pattern is included in the kit, and can also be ordered separately if you prefer to substitute yarn.
