The Love Witch Sweater, designed by Holly O’Rourke (@discostitch on Instagram and Ravelry) is inspired by the playful color palette and 1960s mod silhouettes of Anna Biller’s film ‘The Love Witch’.
Additional details from Ravelry:
It is knit from the top down with raglan seams in DK weight yarn, and is designed to have a close, cropped fit with no waist shaping. The sleeves are also customizable, with options for a large, dramatic bell sleeve or a gently increasing small bell sleeve. Instructions are included for modifying the body and sleeve length. When you purchase the pattern on Ravelry, you will be able to download 2 different PDFs depending on your sleeve preference.
