A pullover that you will want to live in, Layton’s striking details add intricacy and elegance to this clean-lined silhouette. Combined with Pebble’s graceful drape, you never want sweater weather to end.

Layton is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up and sewn together. The collar and optional cuffs are worked circularly from picked-up stitches, then folded and sewn/tacked to the garment.
