Inspired by classic gansey sweaters, this pullover is modernized with dolman sleeves, an allover texture pattern and a wide herringbone welt. Always seeking traditional knits that flatter the figure, the Leeward Pullover was inspired by Gladys Thompson’s “Patterns for Guernseys, Jerseys and Arans.”
