Drift is knit seamlessly from the top down and features a simple yoke construction that is adorned with a pretty eyelet pattern that is continued down through the sleeves. Slight waist shaping adds a flattering fit to the garment which has an overall casual structure that looks great with a pair of jeans or worn over a spring dress. Knit in fingering weight yarn, Drift makes a fabulous transitional piece that can be worn in the spring and autumn months.
