The Lehto sweater by Anna Johanna is one of many stunning designs in her beautiful book, Strands of Joy, published by Laine magazine. If you have yet to pick up a copy- Check with a LYS near you!
I was fortunate to be able to test knit this design last Spring, and this sweater has been in heavy rotation ever since. With the combination of the lovely leaf motif along with the drape of the Merino Sport- this sweater makes for a comfortable and wearable knit!
