It is a lovely yarn which is make entirely of natural fibres, ideal for those with sensitive skin.

We have chosen shade Lemon, it zings with freshness and is very much in fashion at the moment. However, there are 30 shades to choose from if you prefer another colour. You can view them and find your nearest stockist at

We have marked this design Intermediate. The pattern is worked over 28 rows so it is important to note which row you are working on. You create the cable effect with a twist stitch so there is no need for a cable needle. Just be careful when decreasing to follow the useful tip on counting stitches.

We love this fresh, summery knitted jacket and hope you do, too.
