Description
Working from traditional sweater "recipes," DONNA DRUCHUNAS and DEBBIE O'NEILL developed two sweaters - one big, one little. Sleeves, worked in the round, are sewn into steeked armholes in the traditional manner. Bold, graphic patterning is the hallmark of Norwegian color work. Smooth superwash wool highlights stitch detail and crisp, clean lines.
