Helmi

€6.00 Tax included

A nice textured sweater designed by Sari Nordlund

Description

The Helmi pullover is knitted seamlessly top-down. The neck is shaped while knitting flat, and the rest of the pullover is knitted in the round. The yoke is shaped with raglan increases and the sleeves are loose fitting.
The Helmi pullover gets its name from the two lines of bobbles that run down the front of the pullover like strings of pearls (helmi means a pearl in Finnish).
