Tavola takes the staple boxy pullover and adds to it the adventure of color and texture. Its silhouette remains simple to provide an ample canvas for a graphic, “striping” motif that is both intriguing and satisfying to work. Alternating between two colors every other row while alternating between blocks of knits and purls across the rows creates a visual effect rather like brickwork. This motif is carried through the sleeves, while the hems, cuffs and upper chest remain in a single color for a color blocked effect. Exposed seams at the shoulders complement the piece’s architectural flair. Choose either complementary or contrasting hues of Arbor for a one-of-a-kind garment to see you through the seasons. Designed by Norah Gaughan.
