Description
This designer has paired a close-fitting pullover with a collared capelet for this romantic ensemble worked in a delicate wool/cashmere yarn. A twisted stitch chevron pattern against a purl background decorates the lower edges and cape collar. The pullover hugs the waist, and a narrow rib finishes the sweetheart neckline. With a single pewter clasp for fastener, the cape falls from the shoulders to just a few inches above the waistline - an elegant and slimming silhouette.
