This casual oversized sweater has an unusual top-down modular construction that makes for an interesting knit – from the striped yoke to the split hem.
The sweater is knit in fingering weight yarn – shown here in all the woolly glory of Tukuwool from Finnland. This yarn is both light and hard-wearing, making it a perfect choice for a wardrobe staple.
