I wanted a cropped sweater with lots of texture that I could throw on over my favorite dresses and tunics or paired with high waisted jeans and skirts! This honeycomb pattern is easy to memorize and rhythmic to knit. This sweater is knit from the bottom up, mostly in the round, with the only seaming being a few stitches at the underarms.
