Stay Wild Moon Child is a classic pullover with a modern bohemian twist! The front and back are knit flat in a simple texture pattern and are seamed at the shoulders. Then, the side ribbing sections with buttonholes are picked up and worked outward from the body. Sleeves are worked outward in the round to minimize seams and bulk. After the sweater is complete, a feminine silk ribbon is woven through the side buttonholes for a unique accent. The sweater has a drop shoulder and easy, oversized fit and features a split, uneven hemline for a modern design that is flattering on many body types. Knit in Myak yarns Baby Yak yarn a soft yarn that knits up to a delightful lightweight fabric.
