Northern Lights

"The aurora borealis, also known as “Northern Lights”, plays across the northern sky in a mysterious dance of vibrant colours," says Leja. "Work this piece in jubilant colours or try a more muted palette, if you prefer. A handpainted yarn, in combination with the sideways construction, will create its own unique display. A solid colour will show the precision and delicacy of the stitch pattern and result in an understated, yet elegant version of this jacket." Worked from each cuff to the middle back (where the pieces are grafted), this is a remarkable piece in one of the world's most popular stitch patterns. Side and sleeve seams are the only sewing.
