Although we do not have many menswear designs in the Purl Alpaca Designs collections, the ones we have are proving increasingly popular. Geronimo especially. Geronimo is a lovely, chunky cable knit jumper inspired by traditional Aran knits. When made in alpaca yarn this makes an incredibly warm and lightweight jumper.
Reg Edwards wrote us this lovely email to tell us about his Christmas present knitted by his wife, Cath. Cath chose to knit the jumper in Alpaca Rain (taupe) and we think it looks stunning!

“My wife and I visited the Harrogate Stitch and Knit show and bought the Geronimo pattern with the taupe wool to make me a cosy jumper for Christmas. I am over the moon with my new jumper, I couldn’t believe how stylish it is. The warmth is incredible and itch free, what a bonus!! The left over wool is being used up on baby cardi’s now. We’ll be sure to be buying more of your fabulous designs.”

Here is Reg modelling his jumper AND decorating the Christmas tree. Incredible multitasking!

The second version was made by Colin Strange. Colin attended one of our workshops last year and he came to the Knitting and Stitching show in October to show us the finished jumper. Colin is a very experienced knitter and chose to do a few changes to the design. The V-neck works really well, and it looks great knitted in the grey colour. Nice work!

Keep the photos coming, we love hearing from you! And more than anything – we love seeing you in your scrumptious alpaca knitwear!

    A very attractive sweater. The yarn shows up the cables and other stitch patterning to perfection. Good to see another male knitter.
