Description
The cropped length, deep mistake-stitch rib borders, and cross-over neckband give this otherwise traditional sweater an updated look. Instead of traditional Scandinavian colors, a heathery Shetland yarn in rich, earthy tones  is used and  the edges are lined with a subtle contrast stripe. Wear the sweater over a tailored shirt or soft T-shirt - either way, it looks, and feels, great.
