Style
A great transition piece for fall when a coat is too much and a sweatshirt just doesn’t measure up. Great for indoors as well. This piece keeps your interest both in knitting and wearability. The back and front are identical. The shoulders and neck are a straight bind off - no shaping. Throw it on and look pulled together effortlessly !
