The Legendaire pattern gets its inspiration from 1950s vintage batwing-sleeve sweaters. It has a unique style with a modified drop shoulder construction and fitted body, dramatically shaped bracelet-length sleeves, and a boatneck neckline.

It’s knit seamlessly from the bottom up. Sleeves are knit top down from the armhole, with no sleeve cap shaping.

Choose between two bold options—Version One has allover stripes with a short turtleneck, and Version Two has a solid body and striped sleeves with a plain ribbed neckband. Both have a garter stripe pattern throughout to add just a bit of texture.

With three pages of customization tips and yardage requirements for a non-striped version, enjoy putting your own stamp on Legendaire!
