Worked with two strands of irresistible yarn (Shibui Yarns Pebble & Twig), this pullover becomes the perfect year-round sweater. The relaxed fit compliments the simple details of repeating purl stripes and 2x2 ribbing – and the split hem is the final special touch. The body of Wintour is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then seamed. The sleeves and neckline are picked up and worked circularly.
