Product description

Bolts of garter ridges and eyelet lace strike their way up the Maricara cowlneck pullover in a stunning display of stitch and shape. The drape of the fabric created by Peerie yarn lends itself well to Maricara’s boxy form, inviting flux and flow to an otherwise static shape. Allow the garter stitch collar to fall naturally about the neck, or fold it over for more structure — either which way you style it, Maricara is sure to make a winsome addition to your handknit sweater collection.
