Did You Know?
The knitting technique used to produce Scott Officer sweaters is known as intarsia, which means "inlay." Intarsia is the technique of laying individual yarns onto specific needles on a traditional hand frame knitting machine in precisely the position required to create the desired patterns. This time-consuming process allows for complex patterns to be produced without adding bulk to the finished sweater.
