Kumon is the perfect balance of mindless and mindful and familiar and exciting, encouraging the hands’ second nature by beginning with the well-known rib stitch before seamlessly flourishing into sumptuous half-brioche. Uncomplicated yet thoughtful in shape, this piece is a sure layer to reach for during the cool hours of a misty morning.

The garment in Arbor is worked flat in one piece from the bottom to the armholes, then back and fronts are worked separately to the shoulders. The front bands are picked up and knit after shoulders are seamed. The sleeves are knit flat and set in.
