Teotihuacan is an ancient city located in the heart of Mexico. It reminds of the magnificence, beauty and thought that went into these kinds of constructions even at such early times in our history. The top evokes the imagery and shapes found in these pyramids and ancient settlements and will bring so much energy and joy into any wardrobe. It is constructed top-down with short rows at the back of the neck for that perfect fit on the shoulders. The circular yoke and body are worked in rounds. The length of sleeves and body is easily adjustable.
