This stylish cropped sweater features a graphic swirling spiral pattern and perfectly puffed sleeves. Knitted top-down seamlessly in the round, the yoke is worked to the underarm where the work divides, and the sleeves are separated from the body. Inspired by the ocean and the current fashion industry, Ocean Surface Sweater is a stunning garment for special occasions and everyday activities alike.

Cumbria is the perfect yarn for this colourwork sweater because of how the fibre compacts and keeps each stitch close to the other, giving the idea of a perfect drawing on knitwear.
