Mousseux is a top-down pullover worked with two strands of laceweight silk and mohair yarn held double throughout. Soft and airy, the slightly cropped body is offset by long, puffed sleeves. The sweater is neatly finished with I-cord detailing at collar, cuffs, and hem. Dress it up or down, this effervescent little number will look smashing with everything from a pencil skirt, to a relaxed dress or high-waisted jeans.
