Gisela Sweater – by Astrid Tueting
The beautifully blended colours of our Appledore range inspired designer Astrid Tueting to come up with a gorgeous jumper using 4 different shades. She has utilised the different yarn colours almost as if using a paint palette and mixed some stonking hues. The Gisela jumper is worked top down and has the most gorgeous details that’ll keep the avid knitters very happy. With the twisted rib stiches, folded collar and cuffs and beautiful cable detail we recon Astrid has designed a true stunner! The jumper comes in 6 sizes and is designed to be worn with approximately 5-11 cm of positive ease. Astrid chose to work with some of the softer colours in our Appledore palette.
The yarn is held double throughout and only one colour of the two threads is swapped per section to achieve a subtle colour transition. A total of four different colours are used for this sweater.
