Product description

Delicate cables form decorative oak leaf medallions to paper the extra-wide fabric of this poncho-like pullover. On a ground of reverse stockinette, the cable motifs stand in relief like woodblock carvings. Side vents and exaggerated drop shoulders give this garment easy style, while a loose turtleneck provides a double layer of warmth around your neck. Birch Bay’s front and back are knit flat and sewn together; stitches for the double-ribbed sleeves and neck are picked up and worked in the round. Tubular hems and chain selvedges ensure a tidy finish everywhere. This garment is meant to be generously oversized, with 16-18” of ease.
