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.
