Bowen is a boxy, contemporary pullover that features slipped stitches running subtle channels along the stockinette fabric. The front, back, and sleeves of Bowen are worked separately before seaming to create a structured fit. The collar is picked up after assembly and shapes a wide, boatneck opening perfect for layering over collared shirts or alone for a casual look. Worked in Hinterland Range, the broken rib detailing and an add-on pocket complete Bowen’s graceful design.
