Cast on your newest favorite sweater, Ward by co-founder Sloane Rosenthal. This cozy pullover sports an extra squishy central garter stitch panel flanked by cables, and cozy Andalusian stitch on the sides and arms. Finish with your choice of neckline—a crewneck, an opulent turtleneck, or (as shown) a comfortable funnel that blocks the wind without being restrictive. This pullover is made from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, then the sleeves are picked up at the armholes and worked from the top down.
