Vellichor (n): the strange wistfulness of used bookshops.
I have been wearing this sweet sweater while discovering all of the amazing used bookshops in Portland, ME. This cropped tee is perfect for layering through all the seasons! I used a cotton/wool blend for a summer version and switched to a 100% wool yarn for a warmer crop. The stitch pattern is just engaging enough so that you don’t want to set it down!

*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.
