Bouquet is the kind of sweater that's effortless to wear and works with everything, and also gets compliments left, right and center. It's central lace motif, inspired by the blooming flower beds in the designer's garden, is worked up in a heavier-than-usual-yarn for lace patterns, making it a rhythmic, enjoyable knit.
The sweater is knit from the bottom up with split hems and a longer back hem. The drop shoulder is complemented by a shaped sleeve cap for a great fit in the upper arm and armhole.
