Johanna

Moving into colder weather, the diamond brocade of this cozy pullover is reminiscent of lace winter lace.  Johanna's simple brocade repeat and slim-fitted styling create a romantic silhouette. Bodice and sleeves are long. Garter bands define the waist, neckline, and hems. A 3-button placket closure at the shoulder gives easy access and a bit of additional decoration. Pieces are knit flat, bottom up, with seaming.
