We are absolutely in love with this brand new cardigan design Rune by Jennifer Wood. Here is what she had to say about it:

"I love the way the smocked design appears out of no where, leaves it’s mark and then disappears. Rune is a lovely top down cardigan. It is designed with no ease and slightly cropped but would work well with positive or negative and any length. Come and explore the mysteries of smocking and get a lovely addition to your wardrobe. The sample was made with baa ram ewe Winterburn Aran, a wonderful woolly wool that has great stitch definition and a lovely heather colour."
