A comely sweatshirt to reach for over and over again, Bedford remains effortlessly sophisticated when lounging at home and wears comfortably cozy on an adventurous day out. Columns of mock cables grow out of the ribbed hem for allover texture that reads well in any hue, while reverse stockinette sleeves serve as a subtler visual and tactile counterpoint. Worked circularly from the bottom up with raglan shoulder shaping, Bedford is a breeze to knit as it is to wear.
