Story is an oversized, tunic length, boxy sweater with a bohemian flair. This design is perfect for layering over leggings and the easy fit is flattering on all body types! The bottom edge features a braided cable, lace, and picot edging that is feminine and fun. An interesting construction makes for an enjoyable knit; the front and back pieces are knit from side to side. The shoulders are seamed and then the 3/4 length sleeves are picked up and worked outward from the body. Knit up in Blacker Yarns Tamar Lustre Blend, this top has lovely drape and the fabric created has a subtle fuzzy halo and lustrous shine.
