Product description

Driftwood is the perfect knockaround sweater for fall – with an oversized fit, luxurious ribbed turtleneck and a soft, squishable stitch pattern, you’ll love wearing this at home or on the go. Because the Loop Stitch is denser than regular stockinette stitch, you will work the body fabric of the garment on a larger-than-average needle for a worsted weight yarn; this is necessary to create the supple cushion-like fabric that makes this sweater so irresistible.

Designer: Julie Hoover

Collection: Fall 2012
