A sweater of a different stripe, Yishu features graphic suspender columns and exposed seams that emphasize an unusual construction and project casual artistry. The fronts are worked side to side with short-row shaping and extend over the shoulders; the back and wide cropped sleeves are worked flat. Choose your favorite contrasting shades of Loft and wear your Yishu with 7-10” of ease.
