Cast on some classic cosi­ness.

Pre­pare for things to get toasty! This 100% nat­u­ral yarn knit is packed with warmth, yet ver­sa­tile enough to wear through most sea­sons. Our de­signer, Jo All­port, has added a classic knit and purl pat­tern stitch, which brings out the colour of the rus­tic yarn to a tee. Raglan sleeves make this top knit a great fit all round.

Note An al­lowance of 1 st around all edges has been in­cluded for sewing up. The pat­tern re­peat is over 12 sts.
