A new take on the Nordic ski sweater. Lundell is an elegantly textured pullover with circular yoke and luxurious funnel neck. Simple knit-purl combinations form a subtle geometric textured motif, which is echoed at the yoke, cuffs and border. Gentle A-line silhouette is shaped to flatter, with positive ease for a snuggle-in fit on cold days. Bottom-up seamless construction makes this a quick finish.
