Product description

Prime is a textural riff on our favorite boxy pullovers. Welts on the lower torso are halved by a narrow vertical element, while the yoke is in clean stockinette fabric. Exaggerated drop shoulders and just a hint of A-line shaping through the torso finesse the roomy fit, and the light warmth of Loft makes this an easy piece to incorporate into your wardrobe. Double-deep single ribbing on the hem and bracelet-length cuffs further heightens the geometry, and transitions in fabric are subtly marked by a lateral braid. All pieces are knit flat and seamed, with the neckband worked in the round after assembly.
