Bold chevrons, high contrast colors, and a super trendy silhouette all make Kuffel a chic, cozy jewel. The pullover is worked from the top down making it super easy to adjust the fit for your own tastes. The oversized boxy fit make this an easy to wear, super comfy piece. With 3/4 length sleeves, you’ll be reaching for this go-to sweater fall, winter and spring. The thoughtful colorwork chart patterns minimize the appearance of pattern jogs and will have your admirers marveling at how they can’t find the beginning of the round-- a truly geeky knitterly detail that I know you’d all enjoy!
