This sweater is a riot of colored stripes, in every combination you can think with cotton laceweight yarns, creates a subtle yet summery, nautical feel. It has a simple classic sweater shape, knit with a bottom-up, contiguous technique. This ensures a perfect fit around the shoulders. It has straight fit, comfortable sleeves and a slightly deepened crew neck line with a zipper.
It’s knit in the round, bottom-up, the zipper is set in by hand and the neckband is folded to the inside.
