The Daydreamer

8.00

I wanted a v-neck cropped sweater with loads of my favorite stitches - honeycomb cables, twisted stitches, and bobbles! I held a rustic single ply wool with a strand of silk mohair to get the perfect blend of strength and softness. This sweater is perfect with high waisted trousers and skirts or layered over dresses and tunics. Sometimes I even flip it around and wear a high neck in the front and the V-neck in the back!
