Just in time for cooler weather, we are thrilled to share this beautiful design by Andrea Yetman for Biscotte Yarns ♥
This sweater ressembles everything that I love about combining the beauty of nature into knitting ♥ The low contrast colorwork resembles trees, leaves and all things woodsy! Featuring a double knit collar, wide cuffs and a twisted cable hem, this sweater is a very fun and engaging knit. - Andrea

Fell in love with this pattern. So gorgeous! I wish it were a bit more size inclusive. I will try to size it up because I do love a challenge. I realize it was free and I also appreciate the amount of work that went into designing the pattern. I look forward to knitting this beauty.
This pattern looks easy enough to follow. I’m anxious to knit it up for myself but have not started yet. Model’s finished garment is gorgeous.!
I was looking for a yoke sweater pattern without a lot of color work. Using the yarn that already is multicolored gives a stunning effect with only two colors to manage.
A lovely pattern taking a simple jumper style with raglan sleeves and giving it a loving embellishment on cuffs and waistband. An enjoyable knitting experience.
Great pattern, will do again
