A rolled edge at the collar and a split hem give the Seamark pullover an air of rugged nonchalance. Knit in worsted-spun DK weight Arbor yarn, the meaty ribbing at the hem and collar flows into cables that twist and knot up to the shoulders. These elements combine in a sturdy pullover reminiscent of the fisherman sweaters of yore.
