BOIRINA

Boirina is an everyday and easy to knit sweater, a timeless piece for every wardrobe.

It's knitted bottom up and in the round, with drop-shoulder sleeves making it super wearable. The sweater features a "secret" cable panel on both sides that continues in the sleeves. With a recommended ease of 20-25 cm / 8-10” at the bust, the sweater gives a relax fit that suits every body type.

Design: Elena Solier Jansà | Yarn: Bouclelaine
