Hamble

Kit (pattern and yarn) with Cheeky Merino Joy
Pattern (PDF) and softest organic Merino yarn

Level of difficulty: easy - medium.

The sweater design Hamble has a casual, modern cut that can be combined in many ways. It is the first pattern for a top Isabell Kraemer has designed for our Cheeky Merino Joy. The sweater is knitted seamlessly from top to bottom and uses Susie Myers' Contiguous-Set-In-Sleeve method. You can try it on while you are knitting and so be sure that it will fit properly afterwards. Whether you prefer the soft colour combination the designer has chosen, your own favourite colours, or just a single shade - this model offers many possibilities to knit it such that it fits perfectly your own wardrobe.
