A beloved sweater is so much more than the individual parts: it’s the way
the different elements work together to create a garment we reach for often. Stowaway is the sweater we wear until it’s threadbare, and then some. The chevrons down the side create visual interest without taking away from the efficiency of the overall project. A timeless, goes-with-everything heirloom design with twisted rib detail and a relaxed fit, this comfortable, stylish look can work for everyone.

Stowaway is cast-on at the neckline and worked flat until neckline shaping is complete. It’s then joined in the round and worked top- down to the hem with subtle chevron detail at the sides.
