All things being equal, the simplest sweater tends to be the right one. The Nathaniel Pullover is a modified drop-shoulder sweater that features a bit of shoulder shaping for a better fit. Milo’s merino-linen blend enhances the easy texture pattern for defined stitches that are softened by the linen’s halo effect.
