This sweater is adapted from a pattern by Martin Storey. Based on the classic French Breton sweater, this was hand knit in a vibrant deep purple with winter white stripes. Raglan sleeves ensure a smooth fit across the shoulders while the side slits offer ease of movement. The 100 percent acrylic yarn may be machine washed on gentle cycle but hand washing is recommended to extend the beauty of hand knitted garments. The back of the sweater is a trendy 4"/10cm longer than the front. Measurements: bust, 43"/111cm, back length 27"/70 cm, underarm sleeve length 171/2"/46cm.
