No.7 /

Alison Brookbanks

Loose and flowing, No. 7 is a unique garment that lies somewhere between poncho and sweater. The loose sleeves, wide boat neck, and oversized fit create a cozy shape. Seed stitch gives the Baby Alpaca and Merino Alpaca fabric an extra-plush feel. Cinch a belt around the waist for a more refined look, or let it drape freely for casual elegance. The distinctive construction is suited for intermediate knitters or those welcoming a new challenge!
