Knit in lovely The Fibre Co. Cumbria, Yarrow by Marie Amelie is a classic, Scandanavian inspired pullover with a modern stranded colorwork yoke.
Knit seamlessly from the top down, the comfy pullover is a great project to perfect your stranded colorwork. The worsted weight blend of Merino wool, Masham wool & mohair is an ideal yarn for stranded colorwork. Cumbria is both easy to work with & has a soft hand.
