Petit Large is part of the Graine de Collection, like Grand Large, the adult version and Thistle.
Petit Large is knitted in the round, seamlessly from the bottom-up. Set-in sleeves are picked up directly on the armholes and shoulders are shaped with short rows. This timeless sweater is spiced up by an asymmetrical and buttoned envelope neckline and textured elbow giving it a sailor look!
