This cozy, long-sleeved pullover is based on architect Stephen Holl’s Horizontal Skyscraper – a bold, hovering future-proof megastructure with projecting elements. Wide bands of Reverse Stockinette Stitch provide a monolithic look, while the thinner Stockinette stripes provide detail and interest, highlighting special design elements: slashed boat neck collar, extra long sleeves with optional thumbhole, and slim waist detailing to balance the overall shape. This garment is designed to be made without sleeves, if preferred.
