ABOUT

This knit-like crochet garment has drop shoulders, a beautiful wide neckline, and is wonderfully oversized. It features beloved puff stitches, flattering vertical lines, and adorable bishop style sleeves. Plus, it's made with lightweight baby alpaca yarn so it's uber soft and oh so drapey!

BEHIND THE DESIGN

You know that innocent, adorable feeling you get when you think about your younger years? The years before you had to pay bills or cook or worry about anything? The years before the "real world"? That was my "inspiration" when designing this sweater. I wanted to wear something that would make feel flirty, innocent, and sweet!
