Tarragon is a relaxed fit, drop-shoulder sweater that is a casual essential. It features a split hem that aligns with travelling textural panels that drape over the shoulders. Long, fitted sleeves balance the body of the sweater perfectly.

The sweater is constructed seamlessly from the bottom up. The rib sections are knitted separately, before joining for the body. The body is then knitted in the round until the armholes, then the front and back are knit separately and joined at the shoulders using a three-needle bind-off. The sleeves are picked up and knitted in the round from the armholes to the cuffs.
