Novita Merino 4PLY: Runo-Lace pullover

The light Runo-lace pullover (Finnish for poem) is not just a poem in name. The detailed sweater is worked with the soft Merino 4PLY yarn, which is made from 100% Merino wool. Runo is worked in separate parts, which are sewn together at the end. The back is decorated with a slit and buttons, that underline the style of the delicate sweater.
