Reilly is inspired by traditional Aran pullovers, but adds an unexpected twist—wavy cables for a fun, modern look.
The pullover is shaped to hug the curves for a figure-flattering fit. It’s constructed from the bottom up in the round. Sleeves are knit separately and then joined at the yoke, and the remainder of the sweater is worked back and forth in rows.
