Headland

A modern shape with a nod towards the classic French Pull Marin, Headland is drop shouldered, and designed with positive ease—but uses some clever shaping to keep things from getting overly boxy.
Short rows at the shoulders creates a fun intersection of stripes—and a really great fit. More short rows curve and lower the back hem.
Instructions are given for working Headland with 2 x 2 row stripes or 6 x 2 row stripes—each makes for a very different look.
