Our Pasture Pullover knits up into a cocoon of warmth… Soft and cozy, understated and down to earth.
Knit from the top down with raglan shoulder shaping and a straightforward construction, our Pasture Pullover clears away complications in favor of natural beauty and casual ease.
The ribbed details that run through this piece, like fences between open fields, give this project its distinctive details, as well as its pastoral name.
We knit up our Pasture Pullover in our Cashmere Merino Bloom, a nuanced and beautiful blend of extra fine merino wool and cashmere. In the color Lilac Quartz, the whole gorgeous sweep of this sweater glows like heather moorland!
