The relaxed and loose pullover features lovely open lace that flows from the neck to shoulder and to the side body cascading to the bottom. A year-round item.

The neckline is clean, light and open. A ubiquitous ribbed neckline would be too dull, heavy or boring for this elegant pullover.

It is worked from the top down seamlessly. The body is a slight A-line shape to give a relaxed fit. Enjoy!
