MINERAL is a modern and stylish child sweater adorned with an asymmetrically placed gathered panel running from the cowl neck down to the split hem. The dynamic movement of the panel resembles folds of rock layers. For cowl neck there are two options included in the pattern: a medium high- and oversized cowl neck. The sweater has seamless construction, the combination of Contiguous Set In Sleeve- and Raglan techniques. The garment is worked from the top down.
An adult version of Mineral and a similar child dress is in progress.
