Boshkung is the second sweater in my Sense of Space series. Named for my favourite place in the world, Lake Boshkung, the colours and textures in the yoke evoke lake water, the rocks and trees that were the landscape of my childhood. 

Boshkung is a cropped, elbow sleeve pullover that’s knit top-down in a circular yoke construction. Split hem details on the cuffs and hem make it a great layering piece over dresses and t-shirts alike.
