Traveler’s Steampunk women's sweater combines romance with a sense of adventure travel.  Inspired by the freedom and possibility to explore new works, this pullover brings romantic features like a back corset panel, slimming waist and high neckline, with strong masculine lines, deep texture and bronze buttons of the industrial age.  It is worked flat from the bottom up and is both charted and written out for knitter’s preference.
