Salerno is cosy, top-down sweater that features a relaxed fit around the body and flattering slim-lined sleeves. The fun, woven-stitch pattern used for the body creates little spots of embossed colour that stripe playfully across the fabric. Salerno was created using fingering weight yarn and mohair silk lace held together; however, you could easily substitute both of these for a Sport weight yarn.

Salerno was designed to be worn with 10-13” (25.5-33) cm positive ease around the bust and 1” (2.5) cm around the upper arm. Since this sweater is very fitted around the upper arm, it is suggested that you select a size that corresponds with that measurement.
