Named for the tides when the moon passes apogee, Apogean is a coastal-inspired v-neck pullover with seamless, top-down shaping and artfully shaped raglan sleeves. The stripes are knit in dreamy muted shades, reminiscent of the tidepools near the shore, but would be just as lovely in contrasting colors for a more dramatic, nautical look. The pattern includes two sleeve options: short sleeves (shown) and long sleeves.
