This amazing sweater was designed by Meret (@butzeria) after the epic Punk Socks “One way or another” were such a huge hit! It has so much going on - you will not be bored with this one! What a fantastic design!
The Punk Sweater is a round-yoke sweater, but no back shaping was worked, so you can turn it around and wear it with the back in the front if you like! Two sweaters in one.
