knitscene Winter 2018: Seabrook Sweater

My friends have a running joke that, when I don’t know what to wear, I just put on everything in my closet at once. I definitely do love to layer! Mixing a few different skirt lengths, stacking necklaces, and throwing a flannel shirt on with anything are all well within my comfort zone, but my favorite type of layering piece is a sheer top like Kirsten Joel’s Seabrook Sweater from knitscene Winter 2018.

Tops like the Seabrook Sweater will always have a place in my wardrobe because they’re so versatile. Change your look and the sweater’s warmth by layering over different shirts and under different vests and jackets. A camisole is always a safe bet for a bottom layer, but this top would also be so cute over a dramatic graphic tee, a slinky strapless dress, or even a jersey turtleneck.

Drop shoulders and a roomy fit make this piece easy to layer over everything in your closet. But my favorite part of this design is the generous cowl neck, which adds a bit of glamour to the look. It’s a little bit funnel neck, a little bit turtle neck, and a little bit ballet neck, all combined to frame the face and neck beautifully.

The Seabrook Sweater is super light, airy, and soft on the skin, making it wonderful for next-to-skin wearing or next-to-someone-else’s-skin cuddling this winter. Start yours today and get ready to bust it out all winter for parties, date nights, and just because!
