LUCKY STAR • An over-sized boxy style jumper, with wide scoop neckline, drop shoulders and super-long sleeves. The sleeves are slim fitting with extra long cuffs and optional thumbholes so that they double up as fingerless mitts. The star motif is created using the intarsia method, with a simple lace patterning that becomes a window for showing off your colourful layers!
