Wolf River brings you the textures and romance of nature while promising to keep you warm as you venture out to discover your new favorite paths.

Wolf River is worked flat from the bottom up, beginning with the hem. The front and back are knit separately, but both are worked the same. After the neckline is shaped short rows are worked to shape the shoulders and then these stitches are placed on hold. When both the front and back pieces are completed, the shoulders are grafted together and the sweater is seamed at the sides. Stitches are picked up around the armholes and the sleeves are knit in the round. Finally, stitches of the neckline are picked up and the neckline is worked in the round.
