I realise it's only the beginning of February, and temperatures here are around freezing, but this sweet jumper is a lovely piece of Springtime knitwear to look forward to.

It's knitted in one piece, top-down, in worsted-weight yarn, so shouldn't take long to whip up. I suspect the little two-stitch cables are twisted/crossed stitches, and therefore very easy to do without the faff of a cable needle. Personally, I'd probably want to make the body a little bit longer, but that's simple enough to do. Another winner from Quince & Co.

    I, too, thought it would be a great sweater, but I’d make it longer in both sleeves & body.

    Whip up? It would take me four months, at least. Work SO gets in the way of becoming a better knitter!

    I adore this too! there’s something about that particular shade of yellow which is so charming … but I too would need it to be longer!
