The Asti Spumante Tee is all about mixing texture and color. It is a loose fitting, easy pullover, the kind of sweater works in almost any season. Worked from the bottom up and separated into front and back at sleeves, it’s easy to modify for either length or width. The twisted cables make a beautifully textured fabric, and the color within each cable adds a new twist to an otherwise simple, cabled tee.
