Flame Chevron Pullover

Tian Foley has done it again! This pullover in Blackthorn is truly a classic – a sweater you'll reach for time and time again. The easy-to-memorize Flame Chevron stitch covers the body and the sleeves are worked in the round from the body down to the cuff in Stockinette. The drop shoulder construction makes it easy to customize the sleeve circumference and length to achieve the perfect fit. With Blackthorn's palette of undyed natural shades, any color you choose will coordinate beautifully with your wardrobe.
