The ever-so-slightly cropped Rowlock sweater is modishly refreshing. Knit flat in pieces from bottom to top with no body shaping to contend with, Rowlock offers a clean slate upon which shapes can play. Arbor yarn and its supreme stitch definition lends itself beautifully to each knit, purl, and cable twist, enhancing the allover geometric motif that works its way across the body and sleeves. Traditional ribbing at the hem and cuffs riff off of the garter stitch at the neck, keeping this beguiling pullover feeling casual, cool and incredibly wearable.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this garment are charted only.
