Lofty woolen-spun yarn worked in a textured stitch pattern creates a unisex pullover to chase away the chill of late summer evenings. Set-in sleeves add a bit of finesse to the Timbers Sweater, which is worked in the round to the underarm and center-front opening. Sleeves are also worked in the round to the underarm, with caps worked flat. The shawl collar is shaped with short rows to hug the back of the neck.
