Houses is an elegant slipover, perfect for layering in both winter and summer. It is knit in 4 ply yarn, allowing it to drape beautifully, and the boxy silhouette and neckline make it flattering to most figures.

In addition, the PDF includes charming matching labels with blank washing care symbols that you can print out and fill in yourself. Make sure your knitting is well looked after!
