Turn your knitting sideways for a fresh perspective. Knit from side to side with columns of garter stitch dividing the fabric, Colburn offers pleasing lines and shifts in proportion. Three-quarter sleeves balance the silhouette and shaping along the shoulders ensures a neat fit. In lightweight Loft, this pullover bridges structure and comfort.


Construction

The body is worked flat in one piece from side to side, divided at the neck and rejoined after neck shaping. The sleeves are picked up around the armhole edge and worked flat from the top down.
