“Inverness” is thus my summertime ode to traveling and Scotland. Easy to wad up and toss in your bag, just as easy to button up for warmth in the evening. It’s knit in reverse stockinette with knitted stripes for texture, repeated on the front panels along with a diagonal pattern made from a seed stitch rib. The shorter sleeves and wide neck nod to seasonal fashion, but the structured shaping and clean lines give it a sharp, vintage look that still feels feminine.
