Named after beautifully patterned Damascus steel, this classic, clean, and fitted unisex pullover is a wardrobe essential for everyone. This project is calming to knit – just simple stockinette stitch throughout. Worked up in Kingston Tweed, the soft alpaca halo and subtle tweedy nubs provide textural interest. This sweater is lightweight and easy to wear throughout autumn, winter, and spring – on its own or as a layering piece.
