The Tall Shadows sweater is inspired by the beautiful yarn used to knit it. Muted colours on a non-superwash merino base blend into one another like a watercolour, mimicking the lines and colours of the Arizona desert. The contrasting colourwork at the hem and cuffs imitate the tall shadows left behind at sunset. This raglan sweater is knit from the top down and in the round. Special attention is paid to the raglan increases across all sizes, to make sure the underarm does not hit too low on the body and the sweater maintains a more contoured silhouette. Tall Shadows is knit in reverse stockinette and the hem and cuffs feature two-coloured corrugated ribbing.
