A sophisticated beauty designed with “less is more” in mind,
this top is worked in the round from bottom up to the armholes. Sleeves are also worked in the round up to the armholes then joined with the body for a raglan construction. A simple cable runs along the raglan line to add to the look.

The borders that adorn the bottom edge of the sweater and sleeves begin with the Dewdrop cast-on and continue with a textured stitch, which is combined with the cable.
The welts of Stockinette stitch and garter stitch make a soft and flexible ballet neckline.

Dewdrop cast-on video is available on Faina’s blog.
