Cloudy Sunday
Designed by Hilary Smith Callis

Inspired by the giant cowls on last year’s runways, Cloudy Sunday is a wearable garment that still retains a bit of that drama. Knit mostly in one piece from the bottom up in bulky yarn, this is quick to knit, and versatile to wear, too. Pair it with a belt or leave on its own; layer it over a long-sleeved tee or under a jacket. This is a great sweater for those transitional months and will keep you both cozy and fabulous on a cloudy day.
