The designer uses a two-strands-to-one-strand technique to create faux layers in her handsome pullover. The ribbed vest-like body is worked in a strand of merino held together with a silk/mohair yarn. The sleeves and neckline are knitted from a single strand of mohair to make a sheer "under-layer." A signature piece, this sweater will take you well beyond the holiday season.
