Sarcactus is a gorgeous top-down circular yoke pullover with beautiful colorwork on the yoke, hem and cuffs. The colorwork pattern is inspired by the flora and textiles of north-western Argentina, a region dear to the designer, and combines a central cactus motif with geometric details. Short-rows at the back of the neck as well as length options for the body and sleeves ensure a great fit. The neckline, cuffs and hem are worked in the contrasting color, which creates a beautiful transition to and from the colorwork sections.

Boskular is a colourwork yoke jumper, worked seamlessly from the top down. 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 way tree branches and roots reach together in the woods, curving overhead and underfoot to create a pattern that is almost architectural, like gothic stained glass windows.
