The Tillage pullover features bold cable panels and plenty of gansey inspired texture. In DK weight, worsted spun Arbor yarn, the stitches remain crisp and elastic, adding to the sweater’s wearability. With spare shaping and instructions for two different collars and hems, Tillage has all the makings of a favorite sweater for any style preference.
