Gaspra is a relaxed fit cardigan with an eyelet yoke and voluminous sleeves. This cosy sweater is designed by Natalie Warner and worked seamlessly from the bottom up, using short rows to shape the sleeve cap. Worked up in The Fibre Co. Cirro, this pretty cardigan is a light layer you’ll love to wrap up in on a cold winter’s day.
