The Sea Pullover from Swoon Maine features wide ribbed hems, a ribbed turtleneck collar, and the iconic curved hemline that is a trademark of Carrie Bostick Hoge. The pullover is worked from the top down in one piece. Sunday short-rows are worked to shape hem. Ribbed hem is worked separately for front and back. Collar is picked up and worked at the end.
