The delicate stitch and flowing lines of this wrap sweater were inspired by the watercolor illustrations in the 1970s classic Faeries by Brian Froud and Alan Lee. The sweater is worked in a sumptuous alpaca/silk blend, and small details, like a picot-edged facing and vented cap sleeves, are perfect for bringing out the magical sprite in any knitter
