The Highway 61 Pullover is a versatile “go-to” sweater that’s ready for the open road. It has the classic look of an Aran pullover but features modern touches, and the side vents and tapered body make for a roomy fit. The nontraditional cable panel on the front is simple to work yet adds an intricate aspect to this timeless sweater.
