Anaashah is knit seamlessly and from the top down starting with a simple, elegant rolled neckline. The pattern includes options for short or long sleeves - choose what’s best for your climate and lifestyle.
This sweater is light enough to wear on cool summer nights while being equally useful for layering during the colder months.

If you choose to use the ladderback jacquard technique to manage floats you will use more contrast yarn. We knit the smallest size and had approximately 1.5m left of contrast colour after using this technique and leaving very loose floats.
Merino Cloud Colours 712 and 720 are Ombré colourways which are dyed with long lengths of tonal colours as opposed to short colour transitions in variegated yarns. They are beautiful!
