Using 2 types of ribbing to give the look of twisting cabled columns, this oversized pullover uses stripes, a floppy funnel neck, and longer sleeves to create a fun update to a classic style. Follow the recommended variegated colors in the pattern’s stripes, or make your own combination of Pure Wool Worsted’s new washed colorways.
