As comfortable as your favourite tee with vintage quality details. Knit from the top down, starting with a fine i-cord neckline and finishing with flexible no-roll hems, which are made by knitting a turned hem off of an i-cord edging. An alternate hem and neckline are provided for beginners … and any knitter looking for a quick start & finish.
Designed to be worn over a camisole or maxi tank. A merino will give a softer sweater.
A very open neckline, inspired by the fashions in the early Downton Abbey series. Easy to accessorize with a scarf, jewellery, or wear under a jacket or cardigan.
