The Traveler Pullover is a top-down DK weight sweater featuring a two-color fisherman’s rib collar, a relaxed fit throughout the body & sleeves, and a split “shirt-tail” hem.
The sleeve cuffs are finished in a two-color fisherman’s rib to both compliment and contrast the collar.

Choose your preferred amount of “relaxed fit” from the two style options. Style A “more relaxed” is knit at a looser gauge and will produce a more open and draping fabric. Style B “less relaxed” is knit at a tighter gauge and will produce a more structured fabric.

In addition to the body fit style options, choose from two shoulder details (a more open or less open detail!)
Sample shown is Style A fit with the “more open” shoulder detail.
