Andrea Rangel brings us Plantago a sweater perfect for a any outdoorsman who wants a practical, durable, winter pullover. Super bulky wool and tightly-knit ribbing create a very warm and insulating fabric. Comfortable and practical, Plantago is slim-fitting with enough stretch in the fabric to give the wearer ease of movement. The tall fold-over collar provides versatile warmth: zip it up completely for a cowl collar, unzip it a bit to allow the collar to lay flat, or unzip completely to cool down. Worked at a huge gauge, it knits up quickly and seamlessly, with easy raglan yoke shaping.
