By Drea Renee Knits

This sweater is all about being playful and having fun with colour! One colourway is used consistently as the “background” while 3 contrasting colours make up the textured colourwork using the Mosaic knitting method! This is one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe - it looks fabulous with high waisted pants and skirts, layered under overalls and pinafores or over dresses and tunics!
