Be Mine Turtleneck Sweater

This Sweater is one part of a matching set that is perfect for a Valentine’s Day date! Paired with the Maci Pocket Skirt, The Heart’s Content Sweater is an uber-cozy and luxe pullover that is equal parts retro and modern. The addition of mohair to this project makes it all the more fluffy and warm. With a simple and meditative top-down yoke construction, what’s not to love? And the added heart details are the cherry on top!
