The Tattoo Crop is a simple, cropped, drop shoulder sweater with an embroidered sleeve. It is knit in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. The bottom edge and neckline are worked in ribbing with a secure tubular bind off on the neckline. The wide bell-shaped sleeves are picked up and worked outward from the body. After the knitting s complete, the embroidery is worked on one sleeve. Knit up in Shibui Knits Maai, this sweater is incredibly soft, airy, and has a lovely drape. The Tattoo Crop is the perfect cozy sweater for layering over tunics or dresses!
