106th is a simple raglan cardigan with two bands of a graphic slipped-stitch pattern around the yoke. Because the colorwork is done with slipped stitches, only one color is used at a time, which makes it easy to work the cardigan from the top down in one piece.

The raglan silhouette, the slim fit, and the colors of this design remind me of 1970s ski sweaters, but cleaner and updated. Instead of snowflakes or reindeer shapes, this retro design features a more urban pattern reminiscent of highways, windows, row houses, or consoles.
