Shelter marls make the simplest fabrics eye-catching, and exposing the pebbled texture of the purl side only heightens the effect. The Mossbank pullover adds ribbed edges in a coordinating solid color as a grounding accent. Tailored shaping with set-in sleeves, a generous neckline, and just enough ease for layering make this sweater the kind of simple basic that quickly becomes indispensible as a wardrobe anchor. Mossbank is worked flat and seamed, with the neckband knit in the round after assembly.
