This is such a simple sweater to make. I could easily make one in 5 to 7 evenings of knitting. Lucy Light is a super gift, even for a family member. It's a light garment that will keep the chill off sunburnt shoulders on summer evenings but will also insulate those members of our family who may be in colder climates.

A light, but cozy trans-seasonal sweater, made from luxurious silk and the softest kid mohair. So easy to knit, featuring generous and fashionable balloon sleeves. Choose either the cheeky cropped version or a more accommodating longer length.

This sweater is fairly fitted. If you want a more accommodating fit please knit the next size up.
