This beautiful yoke fairisle sweater is an original design by Andrea Yetman for Biscotte Yarns ♥ One of our favorite!!!
"Jigs and Reels is a special sweater that has Stranded Colorwork motifs designed by my 8 year old daughter! Being a true little Newfoundlander it felt right to name it after a Newfoundland saying “Jigs and Reels” which is said in an expression of determination. “Through the jigs and reels of it all, Sophie designed the motifs for this cozy, relaxed and very fun to wear sweater!" - Andrea.
