Essie is knit from the top down in the round, with minimal finishing. The colourwork detail is made by simply knitting small popcorns across the single row of stripes. Apart from the raglan increases, Essie has no shaping, giving the sweater a modern, boxy finish. A warm-weather sweater that’s as easy to knit as it is wear!
