This timeless design features an A-line silhouette, classic split hem, and flattering v-neck. Slipped stitches add key details in the form of delicate seams that run down the front, back, and sides—and they create clean self-finished edges at the neckline and armholes.

Drop shoulder shaping naturally forms cap sleeves, which are perfect for warmer climates. If three-quarter length sleeves are desired, stitches can be picked up at the armhole edges, allowing the slipped stitches to create gentle seam lines. The elegant braid across the shoulders beautifully intersects with the seams, while providing structure and a simple finish to the back neck.

Top-down construction makes for a quick and easy knit, and short row shaping at the shoulders ensures a fabulous fit. The drapey linen creates a comfortable pullover welcome throughout the seasons. Westerly is an essential addition to your wardrobe!
