A luxurious cropped sweater with built in features to compliment your yoga practice or just chill out in style.

The cuffs have a generous length of ribbing and start high on the wrist. So that they don’t fall down onto your hands during practice.

The cropped length means that there is not an excess of fabric to fall over during inversions and downward dogs. There is plenty of ease through the rib cage to support freedom of movement during spinal twisting postures. The body rib is deliberately loose to reduce friction between any sports bras of cropped tops worn underneath

The shoulder detail is a Fishbone lace stitch. A nod to the Gansey heritage of the Highlands. Also a feature that allows for a little air around the area and ensure you stay comfortable during practice.

The overall pattern is a top down circular yoke with no sewing up at the end. Combined with the cropped length this should be a quick and easy knit for yourself or the yogi in your life.
