Designing knitwear is also about playing with texture and assembling different yarns to create surprising and dreamy results. For our no. 25, Astrid worked a pure lambswool together with a pure alpaca. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? The pattern has a simple and elegant look, with delicate details on the neckband and cuffs, very traditional Norwegian inspired. 
The sweater is worked in the round, bottom-up.
