Description
This sweater combines the cut and feel of a classic Brittany striped sailor shirt and an Indian-slanted Pucci palette. Increases and decreases "tip" the stripes up and down across the sweater and short rows shape the front neck and sleeve caps. As in the traditional sailor sweater, the shoulders are bound off straight across, then overlapped at the shoulder, which adds scoop to the neckline. The matching ribbed hat has a charming whirlpool pattern at the crown.
