Eventide chevron pullover knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh | Tempest book

Eventide

Alternating bands of sheer and opaque chevrons create contrast and texture in this boxy pullover. Set-in sleeves and seams provide structure for a refined fit. Knit in fine merino and silk, this pullover has a sophisticated air while the easy silhouette makes it equally comfortable in a more casual setting.
