Product description

A modern makeover of the traditional fisherman’s sweater, Hawser’s oversized cables on a lush background of double moss stitch are set off by a folded collar, deep hem and ribbed side panels in lofty woolen-spun Shelter or Tones. The breezy silhouette is thoughtfully balanced by trim drop-shoulders and slim sleeves for an easy-fitting garment in which to live, work, and play. This updated version offers a wider range of sizes, with options for A-line or straight body shaping and instructions for adjusting sleeve and body length.
