This architectural A-line pullover in Arbor surprises the eye with unexpected intersections of ribbed texture. Columns of half-twisted single rib climb the body from the split hem and then begin to diverge and overlap in geometric panels. Arbor’s round, 3-ply construction and worsted spin renders every line in the crispest definition. Bracelet-length sleeves in reverse stockinette and an open neckline balance the wide hem and the busy fabric of the torso.
