Fairy lights sweater

$9.00 USD



DESCRIPTION
The Fairy lights sweater is inspired by my favorite part of Christmas: the fairy lights. 
It’s knit top-down, with an elegant circular yoke. After the yoke, stitches are placed on hold for each sleeve, and the body is knit down in the round, ending in twisted rib cuffs. 
The romantic sleeves are then picked up and worked with increases for that flowy look, ending in twisted rib cuffs.
