A cabled pullover with mock turtleneck featuring Woolfolk’s LUFT* yarn.
A cabled pullover with mock turtleneck featuring Woolfolk’s LUFT yarn. Berg is worked circularly from the bottom hem and sleeve cuffs to underarms, then divided and worked flat. The classic cable pattern, which is worked on the front and back, makes a playful statement centered on minimal stockinette fabric.
*Luft is an airy combination of Ultimate Merino® in an organic cotton cage (GOTS certified) which creates a garment that has a lot of drape without adding a lot of weight. Colors shown in photo are: L6 (black), L5 (navy), L4 (ochre), L3 (light blue), L2 (medium gray) and L1 (light gray).
