Bevin Pullover

Bevin main picture


Bevin is a lightweight pullover that would work equally well at the beach or the office. The design features a deep v-neck and crisp branching cables running up the sides of the front and back.

In cotton or a cotton blend, it’s the perfect sweater for spring and summer knitting. Also looks great in wool!

The sweater is constructed in pieces and then seamed together. The added stability of the seams will help it drape properly without any sagging. Close-fitting sleeves are worked flat and then seamed in place. Simple rolled edges at the hem, neckline, and sleeves of the sweater complement the casual, yet put-together look.
