Light to dark, autumn to winter — inspired by bright sun glinting off coastal crags and the rugged black waters of the Arctic, Grinnell is a light yet insulating layer designed to weather nature’s inexorable march through the seasons. Traditional motifs etch across the colorwork yoke, made timeless in Loft’s rich tweeds. Beautiful in both crisp neutrals and bold color, this seamless sweater is always a perfect fit.

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