Quince Sparrow

$ 7.69 Regular price $ 10.99

Sparrow is beautiful in its simplicity. Its clean, smooth hand is crisp as you knit it. But after washing, it becomes handkerchief soft, spun in Italy from organic linen grown in Belgium.

We adore Leila’s "Bolan" tee: Knitted sideways in four pieces—two panels for the front, two for the back—worked from the center out to the ends of the short sleeves, this one is a fun knit for sure; and the gorgeous textured lace panel in the yoke flatters the collarbones, making it a piece you’ll want to grab all the time.

Shown in size 48½“ / 123 cm on a 33” / 84 cm, 5’ 9” / 175.5 cm tall model (15½” / 39.5 cm positive ease).

Leila Raven's "Loire" is the perfect summer cardigan. It maximizes drape by including two wide front panels alternating bands of eyelets and simple lace—the pleasure of working the front panels and the simplicity of a top-down raglan makes this so irresistible!
