Craft Lovers ♥ Ribeira Sacra Jumper knitted with Katia Lincys by The Single Crochet

Ribeira Sacra Jumper

If your perfect holiday combines travel and knitting or crocheting, then pay attention to this Craft Lovers post. We invite you to discover and knit a part of the Galician landscape (north of Spain) with Gema Blasco, The Single CrochetGema is passionate about handicrafts and enjoys publishing stitches, tutorials and tips on her Facebook page. On this occasion, we have the pleasure of sharing a knitting pattern created by Gema using  Katia Lincys. The Ribeira Sacra Jumper is a design inspired by the natural interior of Galicia. There’s no doubt that this is “a unique and magic place” for this Galician knitter and crocheter.

Lincys Colour Range

Beige, brown, black and various greens give personality to the Ribeira Sacra Jumper knitted with Katia Lincys. This 100% linen yarn creates a subtle colour effect combined with a fresh summery appearance. Discover the full colour range and the other designs created with Lincys in the Katia Concept 3 magazine. But first, prepare your needles and travel to the Galician mountains and rivers. Although, if you prefer, Gema also suggests that you can “adapt the colours to your favourite landscape”. Whatever it may be, follow the knitting pattern by The Single Crochet to knit this beautiful simple jumper.
