Saddle-Shoulder Men's Pullover Pattern

Saddle-Shoulder Men's Pullover Pattern





The Design

“A classic in worsted weight.”

This timeless sweater combines the relaxed ease of a modified drop shoulder with a slightly shaped shoulder line and gently sloped sleeve cap—the saddle tab squares it all up. The classic crew neck has a relaxed fit so it looks handsome over a collared shirt or a tee. And she’ll love its slouchy weekend comfort, too.
