“The old wanderlust had gotten into his blood, the joy of the unbound life, the joy of seeking, of hoping without limit.”
-Upton Sinclair, The Jungle

Rich sailing traditions come alive in this standard fitting pullover with a strong nautical cable dominating the front and back. Dress it up or down; either way it’s a gorgeous addition to your wardrobe. A cable in contrasting color runs along the center sleeve and extends to form saddles along the shoulder, then transitions into ribbing at the neck. Worked flat from the bottom up, the cables are both charted and written.

Sizes: Women’s XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL).
