Ferry Building





fingering weight yarn


Ferry Building, by cofounder Sloane Rosenthal, is a flowy, modified-drop-shoulder pullover featuring a graphic cable motif at the hem. Finished with ribbed sleeves and a dramatic cowl neck, this sweater has a modern, easy-to-wear silhouette. Short row shaping on the back gives the hem the slightest hint of a flattering high-low curve.

This sweater is worked in pieces and seamed, with minimal shaping below the underarms. Increases along the armhole subtly angle the sleeves, while sloped bind-offs shape and anchor the shoulders. After the sweater is seamed, stitches are picked up from the neckline and the cowl neck is knit in the round.
