Horizontal accent lines in the Park Bench Pullover echo the lines formed by the slats on the seat of a classic park bench. The style of this pullover is as classic as a Park Bench itself. This pullover is perfect for those first cool days of early fall when a T-shirt is not quite warm enough, or to wear over a long-sleeve Tee on cold winter days for a casual layered-look. The fit is slightly over-sized and boxy.
This short-sleeve pullover is knit in the round, from the bottom-up, in one piece. The shoulders are shaped with short rows. The sleeves and neck band are picked up and knit at the end.
