The design is slightly oversized, perfect for casual outfits. And is knitted with a premium yarn, a mix of alpaca and merino.

This design is knitted in the top-down techniques using stockinette stitch. First neckline and shoulders are shaped while knitting back and forth in flat. Then work is joined together to give final shape to the neckline and yoke is continued in rounds before it is divided into body and sleeves. Both sleeves and body are continued in round. Eventually sweater is completed with a neck edge using seemless technique.
