Kristeen describes this pattern, “It would be easy to imagine Simone de Beauvoir curled up in this namesake garment, tucked away at Les Deux Magots, typewriter at the ready, with (Jean-Paul) Sartre not far removed. A snuggle-worthy cowl and flaring sleeves provide a poetic edge, while the baby camel yarn makes knitting this top-down raglan a sensual pleasure.” -from French Girl Knits (the book).
