The Hadid sweater is full of surprises: the panels that frame the center front and back may look like cables or traveling-stitch work, but they are in fact simple ribs drawn together with occasional wraps around small groups of stitches; the drop sleeves are formed not by casting on at the underarm, but by gradual increases at the inner edges of the ribbed section.

The |//LINES\\| collection is full of textures that draw the eye in, up, around, through -- like the best architectural spaces, these sweaters give us much to contemplate, while still inviting us to live in them comfortably. In that spirit, we've named them each after a contemporary woman architect: Zaha Hadid, Selasi Setufe, Kazuyo Sejima, and Emma Miloyo.
