Independent Designer Feature: Amelie by Gudrun Johnson

This past week our friend Gudrun Johnson of The Shetland Trader released a great pattern, perfect for knitting {+ wearing!} in these warm summer months. Amelie, inspired by her recent travels to Paris and named after the cinematic classic, showcases the effortless style of the French with delicate details to create a great summertime sweater.

The front of Amelie features a simple mesh triangle for a gorgeous neckline that is then connected to the back through an i-cord edging for a beautiful and unique detail. Knit out of Canopy Fingering in Acai, this lightweight sweater is ready to make an appearance on those chilly beach nights.
