Product description

If you’re already dreaming of spring, cast on a breezy modern pullover in stripes of Loft that recall the greening of furrowed fields. Stratum’s bateau neck and 3/4-length dolman sleeves balance a dramatically flared skirt. Shifts from stockinette to garter stitch create sleeve shaping as well as a subtle triangular motif rising from the cuff to echo the lines of the body. The knitting is seamless plain sailing that honors simple stitches, with the stockinette body worked circularly from a garter hem and stitches cast on provisionally for the sleeves so that the garter stitch elements can be worked flat and united with a joinery bind-off from cuff to shoulder. Thoughtful details like a faux seam of purl stitches conceal the color jog between stripes and make Stratum a delight to knit as well as to wear. We’ve chosen an earthbound colorway of Truffle Hunt and Foothills, but a sharp blue and gray or red and white pairing would heighten the nautical effect of a design inspired by classic sailor sweaters.
