Color blocking puts a retro spin on the textured pullover. Knit in two shades of Loft, Sanford features a chevron pattern on the torso and stockinette set-in sleeves. The stitch motif can be worked from charts or written instructions. Waist shaping and a traditional fit keep everything smart, and of course there’s the option to knit in a single color for a subtle and versatile wardrobe staple.
