knitscene Winter 2018: Great Falls Sweater
I’m just going to say it: every winter wardrobe needs a good turtleneck, and when it comes to classic turtlenecks, the Great Falls Sweater from knitscene Winter 2018 checks all the right boxes.
This classic raglan-style turtleneck pullover has an approachable look that doesn’t sacrifice style. Allover serpentine cables adorn the Great Falls Sweater, while broken-rib and reverse broken-rib stitches make up the neck and edging. The result is a timeless sweater you’ll cherish in your wardrobe.
