Description

Designed for Purl Soho by one of our favorite designers, Julie Hoover, Olson has a deep Dolman sleeve and a steep shoulder slope, making it an ideal garment to pull on over almost anything. All knit up in Purl Soho's Understory, a beautiful blend of alpaca, yak, and silk that looks and feels absolutely amazing in simple stockinette stitch, you'll knit your Olson in pieces, incorporating a gentle sweep at the hem and extra deep ribbed bands. An inside-out detail that celebrates the long line of the sleeve is part of this sweater's easy finishing and is the final touch of this wear-everyday-and-feel-great cardigan!
