You’ll love the simple, classic silhouette of this henley pullover. Ciomara is knit in fingering yarn for a lightweight sweater that can be worn layered or alone, with set-in sleeves and and a tidy button placket to finish the look. The slightly cropped style and bracelet-length sleeves can be easily modified to fit your personal preferences. It’s sure to be a go-to wardrobe staple for all your adventures!
