As I was designing this I was reminded of the celtic carvings on the stones of tiny Devenish Island in Northern Ireland, with the blue of Lough Erne glistening in the background.

This little sweater is the perfect marriage of fashion and function. Worn alone or as a layering piece, it spans all seasons, and the generous length means it can even be worn first as a tunic, then as a top when a growth spurt hits. The sweeping split cowl collar is the perfect finishing touch.
