Turn your knitting sideways for a fresh perspective. Knit from side to side with columns of garter stitch dividing the fabric, Colburn offers pleasing lines and shifts in proportion. Three-quarter sleeves balance the silhouette and shaping along the shoulders ensures a neat fit. Designed for 4-6″ of ease in lightweight Loft, this pullover bridges structure and comfort.
