This gift set is bound to challenge and inspire any knitter! The Victoria diamond pullover has modern styling with three-quarter length sleeves and classical lace detailing inset at the collar. Knit from the top-down, this raglan shaped sweater is a must for those who hate seaming.
Kettle-dyed yarn will best show off this pattern due to the depth of the coloring.The close fit of the sweater is created using a set of darts around the waist. Bright, vivid colors create a more modern look while subdued colors will look more elegant.
Gift Kit includes book Refined Knits by Jennifer Wood (pattern within) and selected yarn.
