Trailblazing good looks. A field of bone and braid cables distinguishes this modern Aran pullover in Shelter. Intentionally unmirrored, the cables broadcast a sense of syncopation. The design features thoughtful shaping through the hybrid shoulders and pleasing transitions in fabric, from busy cables to calm stockinette to twisted rib edgings. Worked flat and seamed, Denali offers just the right blend of action and mellow knitting for an adventurous intermediate.
