This pullover has a touch of the nautical about it. Inspired by the classic Breton stripe, the eyelet and i-cord tie to the side and on the sleeves add some nice spots of interest when neatly gathered. This simple tunic-style pullover looks super-smart in red, white, and blue and makes any outfit look fresh and sharp. The gathered sleeves and front section are created using eyelets and i-cord. Don’t let this special trim treatment scare you--once you’ve learned how to pair eyelets and i-cord you’ll want to add it to other garments! Pair this lovely, comfortable sweater with casual jeans for days spent sailing or visiting the seaside, or with a gathered skit or smart trousers for more formal events.
