Kimono sleeves and an A-line shape give this Loft pullover effortless style. A subtle Eye of Partridge pattern—usually seen in sock heels—lends interest to the skirt and sleeve fabric, while a garter slip stitch creates a woven effect for the bodice. Vela begins with the front and back yoke worked flat; stitches for the lower body and sleeves are picked up purlwise to expose the selvedge and worked downward in the round. A delicate neckband is worked in slipped-stitch stockinette after seaming. The result is a graceful, seasonless layering piece that’s easy to dress up or down.
