Columns of cables and lace carved into a background of Reverse Stockinette stitch set the lovely Runestone sweater apart. This pullover features springy, three-quarter length sleeves, a split hem, and a beautiful V-neck. Lace along the sleeves carries into the saddle shoulders, making every element of this piece shine. Knit in our Vireo yarn, Runestone’s decorative motifs stand out thanks to its mystifying stitch definition and subtle sheen.
