Amsterdam style is heavily influenced by bicycle culture. That is to say if you can’t ride a bike in it, it won’t be worn. Classy, casual-cool shapes like a drop-shoulder or a dolman sleeve add something stylish to the otherwise practical aspect of Dutch city life.

Front with V-Neckline and Back are knitted from the bottom up to the top, in a V-shape pattern. The sleeves are knitted direct on the side of back and front in St st. Sleeve length is three quarter. The sweater is designed to fit with 4-6”/10-15cm of positive ease.
