Slightly cropped and thoroughly cabled, McLoughlin is the perfect partner for winter skirts and boots. Organic cable motifs twine up the front and sleeves of this pullover, worked entirely in the round in Quarry. The ground of reverse stockinette throws the cables into eye-catching high relief and lends subtle pebbled texture to the plain back. McLoughlin is designed for a close fit—our model is wearing it with just an inch of ease—with waist shaping and a modified raglan yoke. The front cables form flattering V’s and a high ribbed turtleneck finishes the silhouette, providing cozy warmth against the rainy Northwest winter.
