Product description

The basic raglan pullover is elevated by eyelet bands worked in a contrast color. Julie set out to create a seamless sweater that “covers all the bases— familiar and simple, but with plenty of attention to beautiful details and a look that is balanced between feminine and sporty.”

With an attractive scoop neck, bracelet-length sleeves, a gently shaped waist, and an easy fit throughout, Elmont is a natural for layering or wearing alone. The myriad possible color combinations may mean you’ll want more than one of these pretty pullovers in your closet!
