Designer: Sarah Solomon

Coombe is a top-down raglan sweater with a timeless texture. Follow the ease guidelines to get either a relaxed classic fit or a more contemporary oversized fit and choose from two styles of sleeves to make it your own; a graceful balloon sleeve with slightly gathered cuff, or a traditional tapered sleeve. Instructions are given to help you match our sample but because this sweater is knit top-down, body and sleeve lengths are fully adjustable and even the collar can be customized to suit you exactly. 

COOMBE DK is a lighter weight version of the Coombe sweater (shown with the tapered sleeve option), featuring all of the possible modifications of its sister pattern. The simple texture has a delicacy as this gauge and makes for a wonderful layering piece in the transition season.
