Inspired by Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Baudelaire is the crop that is going to add some drama to your fall wardrobe. Featuring innovative raglan shaping, options for full bust adjustment and sleeve circumference modifications, an inclusive size range and a delightful Peter Pan collar, making it as exciting to knit as it is to wear. Pair with a dress, leggings, and boots for trudging around Lake Lachrymose, or pair with a chic pair of trousers and flats to be “in” at 667 Dark Avenue. No matter how you wear it, Baudelaire promises to be dramatic!
