This cute lil’ crop combines texture both thru the yarn choices and stitch patterns. A folded collar gives it a classic vintage feel and a polished look. Two color brioche adds amped up texture with the help of fuzzy Suri alpaca yarn! The body is kept engaging with a simple slip stitch texture. Short sleeves and a cropped length will keep this sweater in your closet for all seasons!
DETAILSThis sweater is knit from the top down (meaning you can try it on as you go and add length to suit your own personal style!), beginning with the folded collar. The circular yoke is adorned with 2 color brioche, and then you will separate the sleeves placing them on hold while the body is finished with a simple slip stitch textured pattern. The sleeves are then returned to the needle, picking up stitches for the underarm for a totally seamless sweater!

Beyla is a tribute to bees and all that they stand for: communication, dreaming big, healing energy, sexuality, fertility, sweetness, hard work, balance and feminine power.
Ixchel is inspired by the power of the moon and its cycle. This design is my tribute to the power of women and Nature, the phases of the moon and the phases of a woman’s life.
Free To Fly is about finding your voice, your joy, your dance, your flock. It’s about breaking out of whatever cage is holding you in, finding that cage and setting yourself free.
