Like the gin, this sweater is appropriate for any occasion. Tanqueray is a classic pullover, featuring a deep V with an intricate ribbing that continues around the shoulders and is seamed together at the back of the neck.

The Cotton Comfort adds a rustic touch and a little texture to the stockinette, and it makes my favorite little flowers so wonderfully delicate. The sleeve cuffs echo the ribbed flower and lace accent, and twisted ribbing stands out against the simple body. The weight is perfect for almost any occasion and the detail is subtle enough for any outfit. I wanted a simple wear-everywhere sweater, and so far I have not taken this one off!
