The classic cabled sweater made for today. Montague by Rachel Brockman is a slightly cropped, saddle shoulder, cable and moss stitch pullover with an intriguing neckline we love. This pullover is made for a favorite pair of high-waisted pants or jeans and a snazzy pair of oxfords. Montague is knit from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, then the collar is picked up and worked in the round.
