This oversized dolman top was inspired by modern loungewear. Knit at a relaxed, lofty gauge, the oversized fit is perfect for cozying up. The clean shape features several subtle details * sideways-knit direction, shaped lower hem, exposed shoulder seams and a generous fold-over collar that adds to the relaxed feel. The long, ribbed cuffs keep the garment fitted through the lower arm and can easily be doubled back, or worn slouchy.
