Ash is destined to be a wear-it-all-the-time favorite, with its roomy, swingy body, cozy pockets, and fitted sleeves. Worked from the bottom up, this pullover features deep half brioche hem and cuffs, reverse stockinette stitch in the body and sleeves, and an exposed shoulder seam—the result is knitting that combines meditative and fun elements.
