This delightful summer sweater, designed by Thea Colman, is reminiscent of the 1960's with its shape and neckline--perhaps something Joan Harris might have worn on Mad Men. The shell is worked from the top down, with a flattering front cable and lace detail that flatters a bust, creates a little waist, and hides a tummy - all at the same time! On the back, a sweet collar and some vintage buttons add to the retro vibe. We recommend Luma Yarn. Order your pattern and yarn in one of Luma's lovely colors.

A classic DK weight yarn, Luma is inspired by the mood and light found in mid-latitude savannas—grassland ecosystems with open canopies allowing plenty of sunlight. Daily life in mid-latitude climates, whether in the drier Mediterranean or temperate Great Plains of the USA, are best handled with a layered approach to clothing. Plant-based fibers mixed with silk and wool provide a built-in layer of warmth in winter yet lightness when required in warmer temperatures. The Luma palette includes soft neutrals and bright shades of pink, blue, and green.
