Designer Feature: Abram by Pamela Wynne

We have been anxiously anticipating the release of Handsome: Man Sweaters for Every Body since getting a sneak peek a bit ago, and now that the full collection is out, we’re excited all over again!

At its core, the collection is six designs (Abram, Elliot, Jerry, Kale, Robert, Rushaan), but it is also so much more. Each design is sized from 33″ to 63″ chest measurement, has accompanying fit and style options such as narrow or broad shoulders, and custom calculators that aid you in modifying body length, waist shaping, or adding short rows for belly shaping.

Abram, designed using The Fibre Co. Knightsbridge in Beaverden, is a classic crew neck pullover.

From Pam:

“ABRAM is a perfect first sweater for a beginning knitter. A modified drop-sleeve pullover worn with positive ease, it’s also a classic masculine silhouette that suits lots of different bodies. Visually, this type of construction tends to widen shoulders and make upper arms look larger.”

The Fibre Co. Knightsbridge: Beaverden, 8 (9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 16, 17, 18) skeins.
