Sweater weather



Despite climate change, a Maine winter still provides plenty of sweater weather.

We found cozy pullovers for crisper temperatures at Elizabeth’s at 124 Main St. in downtown Ellsworth. Our favorites were soft, knit V-necks by Wooden Ships. Those come in gunmetal gray or watermelon for $98.

Elizabeth’s also has crew-neck pullovers by United Knitwear. One style was a black and white abstract with circles. There was another United Knitwear pullover in blue with a black geometric pattern.

If you’re looking for a more polished look, the shop has certified organic cotton cardigans by Ivko Woman.

We found a cute floral pattern cardigan in a dark blue that Ivko describes as “marine.” That one is $235.

We also were partial to a shawl collar jacket featuring a geometric pattern in a cherry hue by Ivko Woman. The jacket is also $235.
