100% American Merino wool, worsted-spun in a versatile fingering weight, lends the A-line Dominy sweater its lovely drape. Knit in Peerie yarn, Dominy is soft enough to pair with your favorite jeans, but polished enough to dress up. With knit-purl texture motifs along the hem, cuffs, and collar, and a cropped-length variation, this pullover offers plenty of options that are both modern and timeless.

The cropped and classic versions are each worked from the bottom up. Short rows shape the curved hems, which are worked flat and joined together and knit in the round to the armholes. Sleeves are worked circularly from the cuff upwards, then joined to the body for the decorative raglan shaping at the shoulders.

Please note: the stitch patterns for this garment are charted only.
