Jen­nie Atkin­son CARTWRIGHT

The Knitter - - Cartwright -

DE­SIGNED WITH win­ter walks in mind, this sweater takes cues from tweed and Fair Isle fab­rics. Jen­nie Atkin­son has used a slip stitch pat­tern on the up­per sec­tions, with wide bands of stylised Fair Isle around the waist and sleeves; tiny mo­tifs also ap­pear above the rib­bing. The shoul­ders use the English tai­lored method, which sets the seam slightly back on the shoul­ders.
