Designed by our friend Ainur Berkimbayeva, the Jurek (pronounced “joo-reck,” which means “heart” in the Kazakh language) is a pullover filled with love. In hearty Highland virgin wool, twisted ribs frame the body and kiss at the center line, a beautiful yarn over detail. Worked from the bottom up in the round, then worked flat from the underarms, Harrisville Designs considers this pattern a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty and offers it as a hard copy only.
