Radiant was inspired by my daughter Abigail, a sunny girl who adores colour and is always on the move. She prefers to wear dresses above all else and so this sweater was a desperate bid to create something warm that she deemed worthy of wearing in the winter months. I designed it with only three buttons because Abby is always on her way somewhere and doesn’t have time to work more than three buttons before she loses interest and is out the door. She now chooses this sweater above all others if asked to retrieve one and will even put it on without any prompting at all.
The sleeves are designed to be full if you are using a wool they will decrease in circumference and increase in length after blocking. If you are substituting with an acrylic blend the sweater will not grow as much in length.
