“My love for half-twisted ribs is an old one, but this time I opted for the other side, leaving the bolder textured columns of twisted stitches on the wrong side as a hidden reinforcement structure. The "right" side, knitted in stocking stitch, is thus just caressed by the undercut of the ribs, like in a barely perceptible bas-relief. The fabric gains a slight undulating surface from the ribs’ tension, just as the minimally treated hem gets a wavy and almost unfinished pattern."
– Cecilia Flori
Subtle lines of twisted ribbing score the surface of the Avesso pullover, giving definition to the boxy drop-shoulder silhouette with cap or optional full-length sleeves. Exposed bind-offs, reversible short-row shaping, and gently curving rolled hems refine the unisex fit and add textural interest – for bolder contrast, wear Avesso inside-out to display the ribbed panels and exposed seams to full effect, highlighted by Arbor’s springy worsted-spun twist or Dapple’s tonal woolen-spun softness.
