The Chenille sweater is designed to convey a vintage look with a modern twist. Defined by its voluminous puffed sleeves, this cropped sweater is cut at the waist and is perfect for layering over your favourite dresses, or with a pair of high waist jeans. You'll also notice its dropped shoulders which accentuate the loose silhouette. Chenille is a no-fuss style that can be done in no time using a chunky sweater knit or ponte knit. Beginners welcomed!
