When your lounging agenda demands serious hygge, it’s hard to beat a shawl-collared pullover in chunky wool. Bingham works up rapidly in Quarry, with the hem knit in a variable rib that sets up engaging panels of cables feeding into a central plait on the front and back. A straight torso and raglan shoulder shaping create a relaxed look without sacrificing good design; the decrease rate shifts subtly to nibble away excess fabric for an anatomical fit.
