Shakleton is a seamless, crew neck pullover mostly worked in the round from the top down, with dolman sleeves.
The pattern starts by working the shoulders to the underarms, then the front and back are joined together and the body worked in one piece. The stripes and the textured pattern add a twist to the simple knit.

The garment is intended to be worn with a generous positive ease at the chest for a relaxed look.
