Jumper for girl

Jumper for girl



THE BRIGHT patterning and unusual cable details on this jumper should really appeal to girls who like to stay warm yet smart in the winter months. Designed for Faroese yarn company Navia by Anna Magnussen, the jumper has a stranded colourwork pattern that’s mirrored on either side of that central cable. It’s knitted in Navia’s soft Duo yarn, which blends Faroese and Shetland wool with Australian lambswool, and comes in lots of bright colours as well as softer neutrals.
