Indigo Grey is a classic sweater with a plain yoke knit from shoulder to shoulder. The subtle stripes arise from bicolor double garter ribs that are knit top down. The plain longer and slightly curved back hem gives the sweater a modern touch.
Set-in sleeves assure a perfect fit around your shoulders. The non-identical sleeves incorporate the bicolor double garter ribs: The right one has one set of bicolor garter ribs while the left one has two of them.

For a formal look knit the sweater with no ease, for a more casual look with a few inches positive ease. Regardless of which look you decide on, Indigo Grey will become a good friend to accompany you on your life’s journey.
