Isabell Kraemer's casual Neona sweater, worn in an oversized look, can be knitted in two styles to suit your personal preferences: either with a round neckline that can be perfectly combined with a blouse, for example, or with a cosy, warm cowl neck. Neona is worked seamlessly from top to bottom with our supersoft Cheeky Merino Joy and can be tried on while knitting. There are no individual parts that need to be sewn together. The simple seersucker pattern at shoulders and cuffs is easy to knit but has a strong visual effect and gives this versatile design that special touch.
