Product details

A sweater for dirty stop outs, stubbornly staying up to watch the stars come out and the daisies shut up shop on those long summer nights…or just staying the in park that hour longer than you meant to…This design was inspired by the Victorian-medieval art of the pre-raphelites (dirty stop outs, the lot of them) and features the deeply scooped neckline and fitted sleeves with flared cuffs so beloved of the genre.

I’ve worked mine in a mostly acrylic yarn (Stylecraft senses lace) to stand being repeatedly stuffed into the bottom of my capacious handbag. But this will make a delicious luxury knit with silk/and or wool and mohair mixes.

Created using seamless bottom up yoke sweater construction. Hemmed borders give a neat finish.

Finished chest sizes:

  • XS – 80cm/31 ½ inches
  • S – 90cm/ 35 ½ inches
  • M –100cm/39 ¼ inches
  • L – 110cm/43 ¼ inches
  • XL -120cm/ 47 ¼ inches
  • XXL – 130cm/51 ¼ inches

The sample was made with Stylecraft Senses Lace. A suggested substitute yarn is shown below.
