Pairs well with single malt or craft beer. This handsome pullover for men who appreciate the finer things is as engaging on the needles as it is about town. Worked flat in Loft of simple shapes, Jackdaw features an original stitch motif: sections of garter rib break the surface, cross, and vanish again into a sea of twisted rib. Drop shoulders and a wide shawl collar make the most of a masculine frame, and turned-back cuffs add a touch of youthful charm. This is a long-haul project, so knit it for someone who’s good company over the miles.
