Pretty with Jeans

a new everyday sweater


$6.50

 

Jeans are the center of my wardrobe. Everything I wear needs to look good with jeans. The perfect everyday sweater is hard to find. I want something that I can dress up or down; something that makes sense at a restaurant or chasing my kids at the park. This sweater is my new favorite basic; the perfect match for my favorite jeans. Simple and classic, the Pretty with Jeans cardigan covers the bum and flatters the waist. This cardigan is knit from the top down and includes V-neck and A-line waist shaping. Short row shaping at the base of the cardigan is fun to knit and even better to wear. Next time you pull out your favorite pair of jeans, you won’t have to think about which sweater to wear. Time to rock PRETTY WITH JEANS!
