Sweet and gentle round yoke sweater is one of the loveliest things to wear. It’s easy to layer with many different styles and it’s comfortable and light. Old School sweater has all the traditional makings of a good sweater: a little Lace, some pretty Stockinette stitch and the most wonderful mixture of yarns.

Old School sweater is worked easily in one piece from top down. The lace is easily remembered and fun to work, but also makes it a fun knit.

The sweater is worked in collaboration with La Bien Aimée.
