Product description

Cuddle down in a roomy Shelter tunic with an unusual neckline. The front and back, which are knit flat, feature a central panel of chevrons formed with simple left and right twists and a touch of garter stitch. The patterned sections form a self-finished neck edge and extend from the front to form the collar. The flanking motif of slipped stitches and tiny cables is echoed on the bracelet-length sleeves. For a hint of unexpected asymmetry, the chevrons change direction at the left side of the neck.

Larus is intended for 6-8” of cozy ease, and you may find you’re in no hurry to take it off, so choose a color you want to live in.
