This sweater was created after many, many discussions with a good friend and fellow knitter about “The perfect sweater.” We wanted something simple, so that it could be worn with just about anything. We wanted something classic, but with a clean, modern feel. We realized that what we really wanted was what everyone’s calling a “Boyfriend Sweater” only shaped to fit US.
