As a child I was fascinated by the pyramids. As a grown-up, I found out that I can translate ideas into knitting. So this is my interpretation of pyramids as a sweater. This desert color is just perfect to complement the theme.

Pyramid is a seamless tee worked from the top down; you can easily adjust the length of both the sleeves and the body. It comes with a finished bust size from 86.5 cm / 34 inches to 158.5 cm / 62.5 inches, designed to be worn with 10-12 cm / 4-4.75 inches positive ease.
