This cropped pullover sweater from the 1960s has a patchwork design made up of colorful squares of hand knit, crocheted chunky wool. Pair it with a high-waisted pant or skirt—or over your favorite simple dress! The cropped, boxy, A-line shape and color palette seem very mid-1960s to me, but it could date to the late 1960s, since it also has a bit of a hippie vibe. The pullover has a high, “boatneck” neckline and elbow-length, cuffed sleeves. It is unlined. Avocado green wool forms the wide band at the hem, a narrower band at each sleeve cuff, and serves to attach each individually knit square to the next one. The construction is not as uniform and perfect as that of a mass-produced garment, but the handmade-quality is part of its charm! This fun 1960s sweater has some slight pilling to its wool surface. It is in very good condition, with no other issues to note.
