Let your knitting skills launch a thousand ships! Marvel at the timeless beauty of this boldly feminine sweater and matching hat, fittingly named for the goddess Helen. The pullover blooms into shape from the bottom up with a Sweet Violets eyelet pattern, while an extraordinary cable draws attention as it swirls up the center of the body as well as the sleeves. If you’re not interested in swatching, the hat allows you to get a taste for the pattern while learning inventive construction elements.
