Designed by Julie Hoover for Purl Soho, the Addison is a nice, boxy pullover, perfect for any occasion and always comfortable! A classic seed stitch pattern gives the fabric an interesting textural feel, but since it’s an all-over pattern, the Addison maintains a minimal look. You knit each piece separately so there is a little bit of seaming involved, but that’s necessary for an oversized fit to hold up over time, and you’ll be glad you made the extra effort! Choose to knit yours in Purl Soho's Flax Down or Cashmere Merino Bloom; they both work equally well for this design!
