Foliage Sweater is a short sleeve sweater with a circular yoke in a blend of merino and linen, which gives it a very special and fluid touch. This sweater is light, fluid and very classic in its construction but still with a touch of modernity that gives it its sleeves reaching the elbow and its short cut. The yoke is knitted with mosaic knitting technique so it’s a great way to dive into the world of colorwork knt without having to start with stranded colorwork.
