I couldn’t design a collection inspired by Brittany without my version of a Breton Top! This square neck pullover is knitted in the round and has no seems to sew. I used medium weight, organic cotton with chunkier, elongated stripes to add texture as well as colour. Perfect for wearing on your summer holidays! Free pattern included as download with yarn purchase.
