gilead / Leila Raabe

Twisted panels of trees set in diamond motifs grace the center front of Leila Raabe’s Gilead. Knitted in Sparrow from the bottom up with dolman shaping, this seamed pullover is roomy, with a wide, graceful neck opening, slim three-quarter sleeves, and shaped drop-shoulders for a simple but structured silhouette that looks elegant over a camisole or dress.
