Kimono sleeves and an A-line shape give this simple Loft pullover effortless style. A subtle Eye of Partridge pattern—usually seen in sock heels—lends interest to the skirt and sleeve fabric, while a garter slip stitch creates a woven effect for the bodice. The result is a graceful, seasonless layering piece that’s easy to dress up or down.

Note: Garter Slip Stitch and Stockinette Slip Stitch may be worked from either written instructions or charts.
