Introduction
Dandelion is a rounded / circular yoke pullover with, what I like to call, a “petite boxy” shape, where the body
has a certain amount of positive ease (not as much as a traditional boxy top). I must say that this “petite boxy” is
one of my very favorite styles, because it dresses beautifully in any body type! The textured stitch motif at yoke
and sleeves is inspired by Brazilian basketry, one of the crafts that I admire from my country.
