Heartstrings Crop

8.00

For the past two years I have been so honored to see The Weekender and Nurtured sweaters selected by Jess (Shop La Mercerie) and Kjerste (Wax and Wool) for their annual InstaFriends KAL! So when Jess approached me to design something special for this year’s KAL I started dreaming up a cozy, vintage inspired pullover that I hope you will love to knit! This sweater is worn cropped with a relaxed boxy fit in the body, slim fit sleeves and a high folded boat neck.

*In purchasing this product you will receive a digital download PDF pattern for the pictured item so that you can knit them up yourself, not the actual finished item.
