maple / Pam Allen

We love Maple—it's semi-cropped in the body, it features a cushy brioche collar that hugs the neck, and fitted sleeves and a narrow back neck for a close fit where it counts. The best part of the knitting here is in working two stitch patterns with varying row gauges (brioche and stockinette) at the same time, balanced out by strategically-placed short rows in the trim.
