Gracious is a top-down pullover worked in an ultra-soft blend of merino, cashmere, and silk. Simple colour-blocking allows the hand-dyed yarn to shine while twisted rib details at collar, cuff, and hem add texture and polish. Generous proportions and minimal shaping make Gracious an accessible project which will lend casual, wearable elegance to your wardrobe.
