Not many of us can dance - or even stand - en pointe, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ballet-inspired fashion. Look through your drawers and closets at home, and you’ll find you already have clothing with ballerina touches, from ballet slipper flats to tanks and tees gathered in a flirty V at the neckline. This feminine sweater lets you carry the airy flavor of ballet-inspired fashion into even the coldest winter months.

This sweater is worked in the round from the top down to the hem, and the sleeves are worked flat and seamed. Shaped only in the back, this sweater sports two mirrored cables on a garter stitch background in the front and one down each sleeve. The back shaping creates a subtle curve at the back hem. Knit in Lion Brand Landscapes yarn, this is a very warm knit, with lots of colorplay.
