Ashmore features delicate colourwork inspired by the concentric pressed flower art by Jennie Ashmore. This design is the first in the Organic Collection, a series of colourwork designs that are inspired by shapes found in the natural world and by artists who explore and celebrate nature in their own work.

SAMPLE
The wearer is 5’10” with a 37” chest circumference. The sample has been worked in size L, giving the wearer ~8” / 20cm of positive ease at the chest. An extra 1” of length has been worked into the sleeves and body to accommodate the wearer’s height.

Please note that in the photographs the front of the sweater has been tucked into the skirt waistband. The sweater body is worked straight without any shaping.
