Subtle texture, simple shaping, and ultra-comfortable: it can’t get any better than that! Baxley is worked flat in two pieces, then seamed at the top and sides. The deep v-neck, with a wide button collar added after seaming, enhances the opportunity to layer. The stitch pattern is as engaging as the final results.
