Helene Cable Top Knitting Kit
Helene is a fantastic garment. Knitted on circular needles, it has only one seam/graft and no shaping what so ever! The clever cable detail at the waist creates all the shaping needed, and the lovely seed stitch details adds texture to an otherwise simple top. Sometimes the simplest is often the best and that was also our approach when styling the top for the photo shoot. Navy blue trousers and shirt shows off the beauty of the Helene Top to perfection.
