Pattern Description:

While I was a student in Paris, I went to visit a friend's parents in the French Alps, and we drove over to Geneva for a festival. The drive through the mountains was amazing, and the festival was a ton of fun. We got to sample real Swiss fondue, which was wonderful. I wish I'd had this sweater then. It seems to fit the aesthetic of that region - a great blend of style, warmth, and easy wearability.
