In the words of the designer, the one and only Andrea Mowry….
“This sweater is inspired by some of my favorite things – Wool & Honey Yarn shop in Northern Michigan (that’s us!), Brooklyn Tweed Loft, honeycombs, and my current favorite color, rusty orange! Knit top down, with a flattering, cropped, boxy silhouette, it looks equally beautiful paired with your favorite jeans or thrown over a dress!”
