Cornelia is the embodiment of childhood companions, with sweet puff sleeves and a demure boat neckline that echo the innocence of little girls crouched, tousled heads touching, whispering secrets and giggling into each other’s ears. This sweater is knitted from the bottom up, seamed at the shoulders, and then stitches are picked up to form the neckband in the round. With elbow and full-length sleeve options, this classic garter stitch pullover works up into a lovely, feminine sweater you will treasure for years to come.
