Dillon takes superb modern drop-shoulder shaping and pairs it with a comfy, slightly oversized silhouette. Slip-stitch side ‘seams’ angle forward just a bit, creating a tapered line that’s incredibly flattering. Cozy long sleeves and a stylish dropped hem are both finished with a casual rolled edge. The result? The perfect, live-in-it sweater with a fantastic fit through the shoulders, and the just right amount of ease.

The design’s seamless top-down construction is simple enough for social knitting, and has clever details—like the self-finished V-neck and faux ‘seams’—that keep the knitter engaged.

Knit holding two different, luxurious, yarns together. The double strand creates a soft and subtly marled fabric, adding depth and dimension to this versatile sweater, while keeping bulk to a minimum.
