Sweep is a colorful sweater full of whimsy and fun. The playful fringe hemline echoes the bristles of a paintbrush, sweeping brilliant colors across a painting. Colorburst lends its self-shading splendor to create vertical stripes across the body of the piece. Twisted ribbing and garter stitch add a bit of texture, without over-complicating things. You are sure to have a terrific day any time you sport the Sweep pullover!
