Comfort and modern style with a bit of traditional finishing. The yarns used here lend an incredibly organic and super soft feel. This cropped sweater is knitted all in one piece, from the bottom up and is finished off with the Kitchener stitch and some top stitching with embroidery floss/hemp cording that lends a playful touch to the front. A loosely knitted garment that has plenty of personality.
