Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2007: “Sexy straps and sunbathing - a classic combo. Vladimir Teriokhin ups the ante with crisscross straps at the neck and shoulders of his deconstructed V neck, centered by an unusual open cable. The irregular eyelet pattern that forms the background and the notch at center bottom also give notice that this raglan-sleeve pullover is something special. Work it in ‘Cotton Plus’ from TLC/Coats & Clark.”

“Standard-fitting top with raglan sleeves, wide boat neck and crossover straps. Sized for Small, Medium, Large and shown in size Medium on page 63.”
