Simple herringbone, vertical twisted ribs, and a slip-stitch yoke provide elegant ingredients for this modern drop-shoulder pullover. Transitions between textures are effortlessly bridged by the structural braid in the back, and a more delicate ‘braid’ in the front. Add to all of this a yarn with just the right amount of wool, cotton, and silk, and you’ll have the perfect comfort sweater!

Cullen is knit from the top down, with easy shaping along the back shoulders for a great fit. Seamless construction and a self-finishing
neckline ensure that once the knitting is complete, all you’ll need to do is weave in your ends and the sweater is done!
