With the option to knit as a sleeveless vest or a long-sleeved cardigan, Newel is a thick cabled garment with plenty of modern appeal. With bias stockinette stitch front panels and knit in Quarry yarn, Newel strikes a balance of rusticity and elegance. Wide cables adorn the collar and front bands, integrating cleverly with pockets that complement the overall wearability of Newel.
