A menswear look is cleverly made over in a modern, feminine style by adjustments to every detail of the fit. A-line shaping and narrow stockinette sleeves keep the silhouette fresh and flattering, and the traditional drop shoulders are edited with subtle details to effect an attractive texture change below the shoulder without bulk. Striking oversized cables on a ground of double moss stitch visually lengthen the torso, and a yarnover technique allows them to lie flatter than usual. A column of single rib travels up each side from the hem to conceal the decreases. Neat ribbed hem treatments and a gracious neckline make Hawser a versatile layering piece.
Knit in the round to the underarm, this pullover works up quickly in Shelter. The front and back yokes are worked flat and seamed to the sleeves, and a turned neckband picked up and knit in the round polishes the piece. Ample ease and plenty of swing make this a garment to live, work, and play in.
