Leaf Yoke Sweater Crochet Pattern English


“Inspired by the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens full of green, sand and yellow shades, this sweater, with its collar of leaves, is a great piece to make for spring or summer. By using Somen cotton/linen it will be cool and airy but also soft and strong with a light sheen. In spring you can combine this sweater with a blouse for styling it off classic and in summer you can only wear a top underneath.” Linda
