This is a raglan style sweater with a top-down construction and some stranded colourwork in the main body. Knit with Sweet Fibre's DK- weight Merino Wool, it's soft and warm with beautiful drape. The colours remind me of Turkish tile design, but the repeat itself reminds me of snow falling against a dark sky. Simple and stunning.
