Designed by Stacey Gerbman for Brooklyn Tweed, Kumon is the perfect balance of mindless and mindful! Beginning with a hem of rib stitch, the beauty and meditative quality of Kumon grows into half-brioche for the body and sleeves. Featuring Arbor’s crisp stitch definition, the body is knit flat in one piece from the bottom up and the sleeves are knit flat and seamed. Brooklyn Tweed considers Kumon a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
