This knitted-fringe sweater has the timeless (‘ajatu’) quality of a Chanel tweed jacket. It is inspired by the blouse and jacket styles from the folk costume of Muhu, with stripes of patterning down the front hiding the closings and clasps.

This is a seamless set-in sleeve sweater knit from the bottom up with knitted fringe in two contrasting colours on the hem and a checkerboard stripe up the front of the body.
