This architectural A-line pullover in Arbor surprises the eye with unexpected intersections of ribbed texture. Columns of half-twisted single rib climb the body from the split hem and then begin to diverge and overlap in geometric panels. Arbor’s round, 3-ply construction and worsted spin renders every line in the crispest definition. Bracelet-length sleeves in reverse stockinette and an open neckline balance the wide hem and the busy fabric of the torso.


The garment pieces are worked separately and sewn together. The neckband is picked up and worked circularly after assembly.
