A must have this season. Can be dressed up or down for day-time romps or night-time shenanigans. A very simple feminine and ‘statement’ design. Worked in two of our 4ply yarns; Warm Moonshine and Warm Speckled.
Leaning Lovely is worked from bottom to top, with a garter stitch border, leaning lace cable design panels and a garter st back. Pick up stitches to create the sleeves and pick up stitches all around the garter stitch border to create the ruffled leaning lace cable collar.
One size fits all (UK size 12 to 22).
