The classic fisherman sweater gets a modern makeover in Clio, where a blend of rich textured panels, slip-stitch ribbing and crisp cables are at once contemporary and timeless. Clio is worked from the top down, with a wide ribbed neckline and unique shoulder construction that combines a saddle shoulder and drop shoulder for a comfortable fit. Instructions are given for two versions: cropped with a boxy shape, or hip-length and fitted, with an optional split hem.
