Delicate, light, fleeting… like the early days of Spring.

Wisp is a short sleeve, top-down raglan construction, sport weight pullover, knit seamlessly from the collar to the colorwork hem. This pattern is designed to be worked in an open gauge with sport weight yarn to be lightweight for the warm weather months or an easy to layer sweater-tee for cooler weather. The colorwork in this pattern consists of a combination of simple stranded and slip-stitch work. This pattern includes two finished length versions: “Cropped” and “High-Hip”.
