When I was a High School Student in the 1980?s, I wanted to make a cozy sweater that took the best of current fashion, and something a princess would wear while fighting along side Robin Hood.
Thankfully, what I got was this sweater.
Despite the lacy top, this sweater is heavy and warm. The neck is wide enough for a turtleneck or shirt collar. It made walking to class considerably warmer when I was a student at Houghton, in upstate NY, where it snows uphill both ways. If Robin Hood had needed me, I would have been practically dressed, and cute.
