Reed is a cute, cropped sweater worked seamlessly top down. The sweater has a round yoke that features a reed color work pattern. The design has long sleeves and some positive ease that’s decreased just before the hem ribbing that ends at the natural waist. The body and sleeves have a simple little color work pattern on them as well. As this is a cropped sweater, it includes instructions for a bust dart.
