“This is my idea of the perfect knock-around sweater. With a comfy loose turtleneck and slightly oversized fit, it’s incredibly comfortable to wear any time, anywhere. The colorblock stripes are knit in a combination of two tones of yarn to create a unique and richly marled fabric. Worked seamlessly with very little finishing required, it’s a great on-the-go or beginner knitter project. And ladies, we’ve included a version with waist shaping for you, too.

As a tribute to my grandfather, Chester Garfield Dutton, who passed away at the age of 94 while we were working on this collection, I named this pattern after him. I will miss him dearly.” – Julie Hoover
