Taroko is a colorful short sleeve sweater with a round yoke and lace elements throughout. It was inspired by its namesake, Taroko National Park in Taiwan and its lush green mountains and waterfalls, which are bursting with life and beauty. The body of the sweater can be made cropped or as long as you want and the neck is wide for extra comfort.

It comes in US terms and with lots and lots of very helpful pictures.
