Joni in Vista
The 1987 version of this sweater is modeled by a teenaged Uma Thurman and the silhouette had the oversized look of the 1980's with large voluminous sleeves. The yarn used originally is long gone (Boston; 100% wool) so we reknit it in MountainTop Vista. We kept the relaxed feel but updated the fit. Worked in pieces and seamed, the collar of the new version meets at the center instead of overlapping as in the original.
