POW: Angelina Pullover by Mary Anne Benedetto
It’s hard to select a favorite sweater from Interweave Knits Fall 2017. I’ve been working with these projects for months and I’m still torn. But Mary Anne Benedetto’s Angelina Pullover really stands out.
I am always ready to throw on a black sweater. There’s something so classic and elegant about them. Pair one with even the shabbiest of jeans, and you’ve got a nicer outfit.
But the Angelina Pullover isn’t just any regular sweater. The yoke features stunning wishbone-shaped cables that increase in size with the body of the garment. Bell-like sleeves and a curved hem add a youthful touch to this great piece.
This top softly wraps you in comfort and warmth without any bulk or weight, thanks to Cumbria yarn from The Fibre Co. It’s a must-knit for this fall season.
