The Post Road Pullover is the quintessential wardrobe staple: a subtle, polished sweater that exudes comfort without sacrificing style. This size-inclusive design has a modern fit, but also includes enough positive ease to fit a layer underneath.  The body and sleeves feature a waffle-like texture while simple cables adorn the sleeves and the sides of the body to lengthen the silhouette. The raglan lines are a focal point that enhance the quiet beauty of the sweater. The abundant texture of this design shows up best with a solid or semi-solid colorway.

The body and sleeves are each knit in the round from the bottom up before being joined together at the base of the yoke to continue in the round.  The yoke features a compound raglan for a better fit.  The sweater is knit flat once the neck shaping begins.  The hem, cuffs, and neckband all feature professional (and optional) tubular edges.
