Schoolgirl Pullover

The lime green color of this super simple pullover -plus the rolled edges and cropped length- give it a fresh, hip look; just right for the schoolgirl with a modern sense of style. Plain old stockinette stitch is the perfect platform for showing off the beauty of the thick-and-thin ultra-soft yarn.
