The colors of the seventies were warm and muted. This colorful design invoke the spirit of the 1960s and 1970s. A stranded design, these vintage inspired flowers and simple triangles make for a fun, colorful sweater designed for everyday wear. It has raglan sleeves, colorful bands and edgings, and a simple straight shape. It is knit bottom-up.
