Simple, stylish, easy. Three words which describe this gorgeous sweater to a tee.

No frills, no fuss. Cocteau makes a statement with tidy lines, slim fit and the envelope neck, which is a simple solution to the age old problem of getting that sweater over the baby’s head.

Colour pops in just the right places, a flash of colour at the hem, wrist and neck.

Worked in the round from the hem up, the sleeves are knitted on after the body is finished. No seaming required!

Economical on yarn, the first 5 sizes use less than one skein of the nominated yarn, small amounts of leftovers can be used for the trims.
