May Replay

Delicate pink cables feel like spring to me. Introducing May Replay – a shaped, v-neck, hip-length pullover. It’s a re-imagining of May, a prior piece, and this time with 2 sleeve options – ¾ length and long. May Replay is worked in the round, from the bottom up, until the start of the v-neckline where it splits and is worked back and forth. Stitches are picked up around the neckline for rib trimming. Set-in sleeves are worked flat from the bottom up and seamed.
