Army of Knitters Malachite Pattern by Heather Dixon.
Precious. Linger a while over a glass of mulled wine. Dance beside the roaring flames of an open fireplace. Taste the warming flavours of a berry flambe. Envelope yourself in layers of rich, deep jewell tones. Because baby, it's cold outside.
This very wearable sweater features sequined shoulders and stripes for a bit of everyday sparkle. Completely seamless, knitted from the top down, with saddle shoulder, set in sleeves. Designed to hug the curves in all the right places.
