Recto Verso

This reversible sweater is, so to speak, an “accident”. I fell in love with a vaporous, airy bulky yarn at Phildar, and when I knitted a swatch with, I found the “wrong side” as interesting (if not more) as the right side.
The sweater is airy, quick and fun to knit, and will become a wardrobe staple!
