JO STORIE has used a chunky yarn from her own BareFaced range to knit this contemporary sweater; it ensures that the plaited cables running up the length of the sleeves stand out proudly. Jo’s design has a raglan construction, and a ribbed neckband which is folded and grafted to the inside of the jumper for a neat finish. The BareFaced yarn is available in three undyed shades; the silver grey of our sample, plus a pale cream and a charcoal grey.
