  • Circe - Sweater

    Inspired by the Greek goddess of the same name, the Circe Sweater represents her dual nature of calm and dynamic. It combines soothing, gently flowing stockinette with geometric lace at the balloon sleeves and body.

    Circe is knit from the top down, with shoulder shaping to fit your own shoulder and bust measurements. Optional vertical and horizontal bust darts allow you to create a sweater that fits your body shape perfectly. The lace pattern is repeated on the sleeves and lower body, creating a beautiful contrast to the smooth stockinette.
