This listing is for a digital PDF download of the knitting pattern and does not include the materials to make the item.

Opula is a colourwork yoke jumper, worked seamlessly from the top down, with a tubular cast-on for the neck and short-row shaping to raise the back neck. It features stranded knitting in two colours on the yoke, hem and cuffs. The neckband, hem and cuffs are worked in the contrast colour. 

The design is inspired by the flowing, sinuous lines of Art Nouveau design, crossing and intersecting like roots and vines, with abstracted flourishes and ornamentation.
