Jumper with Crochet Motif

This little style, knitted in size 3 years, has a crochet flower motif in contrasting colours, placed at the front neckline. It is bordered on the sides by an openwork pattern - which, in more detail, runs across the lower edge. The purple wool has a high percentage of angora (rabbit wool), - absolutely beautiful, soft and fluffy - also very warm.
