Nothing in your knitted wardrobe is quite so beloved as that favorite, cozy pullover. You reach for it again and again, like an old friend. Winter Rain is that favorite pullover. With an optional kangaroo pocket, for keeping hands warm or storing a few essentials, and a button-up cowl neck that can be worn open or closed, Winter Rain is the perfect sweater for anything from breezy sunny days to chilly snowy walks. Gentle waist shaping via princess seams offers a flattering silhouette while the slight positive ease ensures maximum comfort. Knit it up in a solid color for a classic look, or in your favorite variegated or speckled yarn for a fun, whimsical pullover.
