Clapton Sweater

I am thrilled to collaborate with talented knitwear designer Isabell Kraemer again and this time she designed in Yama Merino Linen Singles. The Clapton sweater features a gorgeous colourwork yoke with delicate little guitars and clever design details so typical of Isabell's work. The pattern is now available on Ravelry and a batch of yarn was  added to the shop on September 5th with gorgeous colour combos to choose from.
