Close your eyes and remember the effortless, magical feeling of your youth. Take a deep breath and savour the lighthearted bliss we felt when the days were long, we had nowhere to be and we lounged around, relaxing with our friends. Georgie’s dropped shoulders and rhythmic open lace will transport you to those carefree days we appreciate all the more with hindsight.

Georgie is knitted top-down and has a slouchy fit that feels instantly comfy. Her sweeping neckline and soft, gently shaped stockinette sleeves are flattering and easy to wear and a faux side seam gives a special finish to the body and slides effortlessly into a ribbed hem.

Perfect as a beginner/easy-knit sweater. Georgie is fun to wear, simple to knit and great to work on over endless cups of tea with friends.
