Sailor style refined for the modern man. Albion is a Guernsey pullover in Shelter, featuring bands of directional chevrons worked in purl stitches for a current and classic effect. Albion knits up quickly in the round from the ribbed hem and cuffs to underarm; the yoke and set-in sleeve caps are worked flat with garter stitch selvedges and seamed together. Choose a subdued neutral he can wear over brightly patterned shirts or go playful with a bold hue like Hayloft.
