A great everyday shell, this sweater can be made out of cotton for summer, wool for winter or silk for evening. The collar is loose fitting with a rim-edge so that it drapes nicely. The short sleeves can be altered to 3/4 length or full-length as desired. And, it is knit in the round, from the top-down and all in one piece, so no seams to sew. So, get knitting!
