Soft, subtle colors mix with warm and cool neutrals for a sweater that will harmonize equally well with blue jeans or khakis. The grey bounces off the warmer tones so you would swear it was slate blue, a striking example of how a color can vary depending on its context. The yarn is a cotton-modal blend that is soft, drapey and a pleasure to knit.
The body is gently shaped to avoid a boxy shape and has a little bit of extra room in the front to help prevent gaping button bands.
Although it may look like fair isle at first glance, this is a mosaic pattern — no stranding, just one color per row.
