Cartwright jumper

This wearable jumper uses 2 classic British textile designs – tweed and fair-isle. The pattern has a slip-stitch pattern on the upper sections to give the tweed design, and the fair-isle is given a fresh twist, worked in a simple monochrome
The shoulders use the English tailored method, which sets the seams slightly back on the shoulders to give smooth shoulders and a pleasing fall at the back.
