Product description

“Macallan balances simple design and intricate detail. The clean V neck front features subtle detailing on pockets that sit below the waist, while the back indulges in texture and movement with a heavily cabled panel. Look more closely, though, and you’ll notice that the details make the sweater modern and flattering – the pockets are faux, reducing any additional bulk at the waist, and the tails of the cables flow unbroken into the ribbing below. The high waist shaping paired with a looser lower body leaves room for layering. It’s a garment that satisfies two of my priorities as a designer – fun to knit and versatile to wear.” − Thea Colman
