Aoife by Sloane Rosenthal features central blocks of tessellating diamonds that interlock and wind up the front and back of this cozy autumnal pullover. The perfect pullover for casual weekends or dressed up for work, this sweater is as comforting as it is eye-catching.
Made from the bottom up in pieces, this pullover features fully-fashioned set-in sleeves for the ideal fit and stockinette sleeves for visual simplicity so all the attention goes to the cables on the front and back. The folded mock turtleneck is picked up after seaming and worked in the round, folded over, then seamed for an always cozy layer around the neck and face.
