When I began designing this garment, I was leaning towards a top down pullover with some colorwork in the yoke. I spent several days swatching and sketching and agonizing over the idea. It never felt right. Whenever this happens, I flip the idea over and try and think of its opposite. What if this wasn't a long sleeve, cold-weather sweater at all? Minutes later, I sketched what is now Etienne. So, far it has been the perfect addition to my spring attire.
