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

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.
