Swing, as the name suggests, is a swingy pullover with an A-line shape from under the arm to the bottom. I wanted to let the silk blend yarn shine by itself and give a beautiful drape with the pleats in the back. The lace around the neck adds a breezy feel to the Stokinette body. Since the body is nice and relaxed with plenty of positive ease, the sleeves are rather fitted by contrast. I hope you experience the “joy of simplicity” as I did.
