Trunk Show Spotlight: Cloudy Sunday

Cloudy Sunday is a staff favorite!  It’s very likely you’ve already seen Katelyn flaunting her ruby red Cloudy Sunday around the shop.

Can you blame us?  You can wear it alone, over a long sleeve tee or under a jacket.  The dramatic cowl neck cascades out over the sweater and adds beautiful depth to the garment.

Cloudy Sunday is knit in one piece from the bottom up to the underarms, when the front and back are split and worked separately. The cap sleeves are extensions of the front and back pieces, so the only seaming necessary is just a little bit of stitching up the shoulders. In bulky yarn, this is a very quick knit.
