Pure Rambouillet wool — grown in Wyoming at Forbes Ranch and woolen-spun into a bouncy worsted-weight yarn — gives the Forbes pullover plenty of cozy luxury. This sweater is simply constructed, with minimal shaping and seams only at the underarms. Ranch 02: Forbes, Brooklyn Tweed’s newest ranch-specific yarn, lends depth and sumptuous softness to the textured yoke of this classic pullover.

Please note: the stitch patterns for this garment are charted only.
