Linen yarn creates very unique knitted garments that look really well when knitted loosely with a deconstructed look.
This sweater is started at the center of the back and knit from side to side. Exposed seams and dropped stitches enhance the effect created by the yarn. Short-row hip shaping allows this sweater to flow.
