Every fall season, in one fashion magazine or another, there is that sweater shot: the woman with the impeccable eye makeup snuggled in a turtleneck she’s pulled up over her nose. I always wanted that sweater (and that eye makeup). Computer Blue is smartly relaxed. Not tight, but not too loose. It’s the sweater I want to wear in a spare Scandinavian lakeside retreat that has amazing light and a fireplace. For the short-term, I just plan to wear it all winter long!

Sizes
27 (31.5, 37, 40, 45, 50), but you should think about these sizes as XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X) because the pattern is incredibly stretchy and those measurements are unstretched. Add at least 4” to those numbers and compare it to your FULL bust to come up with the size to choose. Sample is shown in size 31.5 on a model with a 37“ full bust and 34” upper bust.
