Cherry Puff is as warm and comfortable as it is elegant and flattering. It uses a simple top-down contiguous construction method where you work the shoulders before you work the body and sleeves all in one. The eyelet motif in the front and the drapey sleeves gives a vintage inspired look, and the sleeve length can be modified.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me in my Ravelry group ‘Skeindeer Knits’. It’s the best place for swift support.
