JASPER by Nataliya Polyakov
Isn’t it gorgeous! I LOVE the cables in this textured yarn!
Ooooh, don’t you just want to dig your fingers right into that soft – squoooshiness? (I know that I do!)
Knitted using Galler Yarns Peruvian Tweed in colour #117, this will be one gorgeously soft and warm sweater!
There are some great colours to choose from in this beautiful yarn:
It would be lovely as a winter white sweater in #127:
A great feature of this design is the cowl, which is joined to the neck at the back only, but you could choose to knit the sweater and cowl separately.
It’s a lovely, long sweater, which suits a lot of body types, but you could alter it to be shorter, if you preferred, as it is knitted from the top down.
