Get cozy with Mason by Emily Greene, a squishy autumnal classic made in our soft + durable Forge in new-for-fall 2020 color, tobacco. The delicious brioche stitch ribbing and Emily’s signature traveling stitches make this design both visually compelling and a comforting cocoon for work-from-home + weekend life. This pullover is made in pieces from the bottom up; the neckband is picked up and worked in the round after blocking and seaming.
