A pullover with short dolman sleeves makes a versatile overlayer to add to your capsule wardrobe. Lohman ices the cake with a dreamy shawl collar in a handsome garter welt pattern. This garment is intended to fit with generous ease, but the light fabric of Loft will prevent it from overwhelming your frame.


The front and back are worked flat from the bottom up. The collar is worked flat and then sewn to the neck edge.
