Minaret is a ribbed pullover, featuring raglan shaping and a boxy, cropped fit. With subtle cable detailing around the bottom edge - a combination of twisted stitches, wrapped stitches and bobbles - the texture emulates traditional doors of Tunisia. Wooden doors are adorned with small metal studs to create geometric and curved patterns dotted with singular studs. The cropped sweater is worked top-down with a simple 2x2 rib to finish sleeve cuffs and the bottom hem.
