The Louise Pullover is a figure-flattering winter knit that is great fun to wear and simple to knit. The fold-down collar adds an elegant element to the sporty body and can be pulled up into a cowl as the temperatures start to dip, making this a perfect transitional piece. The delicate cable ribbing creates a texture without becoming boxy and adds to the feminine appeal of the top.
