“With this sweater, I envisioned a gentlemanly Aran – one which I could imagine worn by broad-shouldered heroes of classic movies. The sleeve caps are cut higher than is usually found in knitwear and must be eased in at the very top but the effect rewards by emphasizing the shoulder line.” – Véronik Avery

Garment is worked flat in pieces, from the bottom up. The pieces are sewn together. The Collar band is picked up, then worked flat. The Collar closes with snaps or can be left open.
