Description: Interesting colour block sweater "with a twist" - that is the blocks are knitted at an angle to each other. The pattern is actually knitted straight, with the colour changes and the eyelets giving the illusion of angled knitting. You can choose the style of striking contrasts - or more restrained shades of white and creams which give a completely different fresher look.
