Don’t be put off by the small sizing, the intarsia design is charted and could be used on any basic 4-ply jumper pattern easily.

    Oh, thank you for sharing this pattern!!! I've been looking for it since I saw a version of it in an episode of Poirot (Cat Among the Pigeons), I thought the design was gorgeous. It will be my autumn knit!

    Oh Elsa – Poirot is THE BEST SHOW on so many levels – and the sweaters (and costumes) are all gorgeous. I have to watch it alone because co-watchers tend to be annoyed by my exclamations and stop-and-repeat when all THEY want is a quiet TV night… 🙂

    Oh man, I love you for uploading all these patterns. Kinda shameful, that I can't knit them myself, but I am struggling to choose which I will get my boyfriend's super-knitter granny to make for me next!
