For those girls, like me, who practically live in cardigans, this sweater is perfect for summer! The light, lacy details keep it weightless and dainty while also providing a bit of coverage if the breeze kicks up or the AC is on too high. the boatneck gives a bit more sophistication and attitude than other cardis and three-quarter sleeves solidify this top's place in your wardrobe during warmer seasons. A loose fit can be dressed up or down easily and the bold color makes a pleasant statement! The sweater is knit top-down, so feel free to play with the length and adjust to your preferences. There are no seams to sew up, and just a few ends to weave in!

I’m a girl just trying to make her way in this world by doing what she’s passionate about. I love creating and knitting, math and the engineering of knitwear. Thanks for supporting my ventures and my life, I look forward to getting to know you :) I’ve been knitting for more than thirteen years and one of the greatest motivators for me to keep going is that every single stitch counts. The completed project needs every stitch to be knit. Every minute I spend on my business, even if I’ve only got one, helps push my brand, my passion and my career in the right direction. Inspiration comes to me from many places - color, texture, attitude - but most importantly I want to create things that are new, unique but still functional and not overly excessive. My items cater to the colorful, young at heart with their own sense of style and value.
