Best Friend Sweaters
"These sweaters were created for a friend’s daughter and her friend. They are made from the top down, and are totally seamless. The lacy stitch and stripes add fun details and make them very unique. Wear them over your swimsuit or a tank top in the summer, and over a long sleeve top in the winter and they are useful year round! This pattern is written in one size, I do not have plans to add more sizes at this time.
