Biggan designed this sweater with her niece in mind and chose colors based on traditional Swedish folk costumes. A deep shawl collar and bottom hem worked in twisted rib set off a simple dot stitch and wide color stripes. The long cuffs of this pullover can be folded back or worn down for extra warmth.
