The perfect staple for the chillier months, this original 1950's knitted jumper in a deep shade of carmine red, is just the piece to keep you warm this season.
The V shaped neckline is framed by a turned down shawl collar, which loops and threads together beneath two knitted loops along the front of the décolletage, creating a pussy bow feature. The elegant shoulder line is accented by the raglan cut of the full length sleeves, which are edged with ribbed fitted cuffs. The line of the jumper boasts a simple silhouette with a wide ribbed fitted hemline.
