This sweater was inspired by the desire for something I could wear to the office with a skirt or work pants instead of a blazer or jacket. In keeping with this desire, Simply Claire was designed with clean lines, set-in sleeves and shaping to hug your curves in all the right places without creating bulk. At the same time, because it is knit in a worsted weight yarn, it knits up relatively quick. As it happens, not only does this simple little cardi look great paired with a skirt, it's also perfect for a Saturday afternoon in jeans! Simply Claire is designed to be worn with 1" to 2" of negative ease and would look fabulous on a woman with curves.

I love to be creative and make things. When I was little, we always had crafty stuff around the house to make pom poms and flowers and bracelets. When I was 6 or 7 I remember making a flower out of yarn and taping it to my parents' bedroom door with a note that said I was going to make and sell them one day as my job:) I'm an avid knitter, designer and seamstress and I love dogs.
