Product description

A utilitarian Shelter pullover distinguished by smart details will anchor any masculine wardrobe. A simple checkerboard of knits and purls creates subtle all-over texture, and a folded neckband in double rib adds a pleasing element of durable heft. Contrast-color elbow patches in Loft can be scholarly or playful, depending on your color choice. Fort is worked in the round to the underarms; the yoke and set-in sleeve caps are knit flat and seamed.
