The comfortable, loose-fitting Monaco Pullover features an asymmetrical hem that creates a slant across the lower body of the sweater. The vertical lines of ribbing were inspired by a city skyline growing up along an incline. The dropped shoulders allow for a boxy fit in the body and slim sleeves for a contemporary style.

NOTES

  • This pullover is worked back and forth in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. The lower edge begins with two stitches, and stitches are cast on gradually until the full width of the body is reached.
