Nimbus by Sublime

Add a textural layer to your outfit with this sideways-knit top in a soft, tweedy aran yarn.

Textures take centre stage on this comfortable sleeveless sweater from Yorkshire yarn company Sublime. Knitted sideways, the top has a pattern of flowing branches decorated with blossom-like bobbles. A deep rib at the bottom and simple, turnback sleeve edgings with button fastenings complete the design. It's knitted in Luxurious Aran Tweed, Sublime's cosy blend of cotton, wool and llama fibre that can be machine-washed.

SIZE 8 (10:12:14:16:18)



THE ADDITION of simple, sewn pleats gives a modern edge to this sweater by Marie Wallin. The lovely lace patterning on the front and back is knitted in Rowan’s delicious Kidsilk Haze - working two strands of yarn held together - while a crochet edging on the hems and cuffs gives a pretty effect. The wide neckline and cropped sleeves add to the feminine effect.
