We’ve fallen head over heels for this beau­ti­ful Louisa Hard­ing jumper de­sign. It’s beau­ti­ful self strip­ing yarn, Ami­tola, creates an in­cred­i­bly soft, lux­u­ri­ous ef­fect. Taliesin comes as a sin­gle sheet pat­tern for £3.50 and re­quires 4-6 balls of Louisa Hard­ing Ami­tola yarn in Sleepy Hol­low and Amelia. Worked on a 3.75mm cir­cu­lar nee­dle (for the yoke) and 4mm straight nee­dles for the re­main­der of the jumper, it’s suit­able for an in­ter­me­di­ate knit­ter.
