Florarium sweater

price excl. VAT €6.50

For me, Florarium is all about reds of flowers and greens of leaves, a perfect colour combination taken directly from nature.

It is a modern round yoke pullover with crew neck, slightly A-line shaped body and long wide sleeves, featuring a botanical stranded colour work pattern with floats of contrasting colour on the right side. Worked in rustic Icelandic wool it calls for outdoor walks and cozy time spent indoors. The finished garment is light, yet extremely warm and comforting like a hug.

Sizes:

The pattern is calculated for nine sizes 1 (2, 3, 4, 5) (6, 7, 8, 9) to fit 74 (84, 94, 104, 114) (124, 134, 144, 154) cm//29 (33, 37, 41, 45) (49, 53, 57, 61) in bust circumference with ca. 15 cm (6 in) of positive ease for all the sizes, except of size 1 with ca. 10 cm (4 in).
