Designed to keep your core warm on chilly bike rides, Kust’s casual look is both functional and stylish. The sleeveless design means you won’t overheat once you get moving, and the henley collar unbuttons to regulate your temperature – as well as adding a classic touch. Worked seamlessly from the bottom up, with a flattering hint of waist shaping and short row shoulders. Perfect for showing off gorgeous hand-dyed sock yarns like Hazel Knits Artisan Sock.

Kust is part of a collection that was inspired by my summer bike tour to the Netherlands. All of the designs work great for active pursuits while being stylish enough for everyday wear.
