Emma combines simple cabled edging on the body and sleeves with complementary cables running the length of the side from underarm to hem. Emma is a simple top-down seamless raglan with positive ease, subtle shaping and a split hem for a relaxed fit. Named Emma after Emma Rowena Gatewood – the first woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail by herself in one season – because this pullover is a perfect mid- or outer-layer for winter hiking.
