Find your groove in a slouchy cowl pullover of Loft that’s all about flare. Belled cuffs and an ample skirt are balanced by tailored set-in sleeves, gentle waist shaping, and a perfectly proportioned cowl. The woven stitch pattern lends earthy texture. The garment is knit in pieces and seamed; stitches are picked up to work the ribbed cowl in the round. Make your Keaton a statement piece in your favorite bright hue or choose a neutral to layer over anything in your closet.


The garment is worked in pieces from the bottom up, then sewn together. The collar is picked up and worked circularly after garment assembly.
