Woods wear meets modern style in a rugged pullover with thoughtful details. Shelter marls add a frostbitten effect to a simple stranded motif that conjures mountain ranges through falling snow. Sinuous raglan shaping provides a tailored fit at the shoulders while a steeked neckline allows the colorwork to continue in the round. With features like a self-faced shawl collar that envelopes the cut edges for a perfectly secure finish, Peaks is a treat for the advanced knitter.
