Lavender Wrapped Knit Sweater
This knit sweater is an amazingly fashionable choice for any season.
If you're tired of seeing the same knit sweater patterns everywhere you look, the Lavender Wrapped Knit Sweater is your next project. From the loose fit around the arms to the uncommon twisted effect in the front, this knit sweater pattern is one of the most unique you'll ever see. The relaxed fit makes this a great option for curvier ladies, but it will give thinner women a gorgeous ballerina-off-duty look. While we love the pale purple variegated design of this knit sweater, it would look lovely in rose for a girlier effect, or green to create a fresh and springy ensemble.
