From the magazine:
Leslie Scanlon calls this wicked-smart design her "desert island" sweater - if she could pack just a few pieces of clothing, this sweater would be one of them. The simple elegant shape with exposed seams is flattering on most women and looks great whether paired with a worn-in pair of jeans, elegant satin pants, or a tiered evening skirt. This beautiful, lightweight silk-alpaca yarn feels luxurious against your skin.
