Product description

A distinctive brioche hem is split and lapped at the front of this A-line pullover for effortless layering. Suspender stripes of textured stitches and three-quarter-length sleeves balance the silhouette for a flattering effect. After the front and back hems are knit separately, the stitches are joined to work in the round to the underarms. The yoke and set-in sleeve caps are worked flat and then seamed, and the simple ribbed neckband is worked on stitches picked up after assembly. Knit Breaker in a cheerful bright hue like Long Johns to give your wardrobe a lift or choose a warm neutral like Nest for a mellow garment that will go with everything.
