Cozy up this fall in Amelia by co-founder Sloane Rosenthal. This laid back, preppy nod to classic cabled knitwear is the comfy layer that you’ll reach for over and over again throughout the year. Ame- lia’s squishy central cable and flanking rope twists are repeated on the front + back and is peppered with basketweave stitch on the sides and arms. This pullover is made from the bottom up in pieces, seamed, then the sleeves are picked up at the arm- holes and worked from the top down.
