Curl up in your favorite chair with a book or some knitting while the rain courses down the windows. This boxy, cropped classic in Loft is all comfort, elevated with a few playful twists. A set of short rows at each shoulders give the stripes an eye-catching pivot, and the ribbed cuffs, hem, and neckband are knit in Shelter for a surprising dash of chunky texture. Eaves is knit in the round from the bottom up to the armholes. The front and back are worked flat and shaped with short rows, then united with a joinery bind off. The set-in sleeve caps are worked flat and sewn in. We opted for a nautical pairing of Snowbound and Old World, but the look of this sweater could vary considerably with your choice of colors. If high-contrast stripes aren’t your style, imagine Eaves in a pair of closely related neutrals or with a gradient of bronze-green stripes.
