From the designer’s Knit magazine, issue 1:
This is just a dream sweater for most people. Everyone seems to like cowl necks, and they’re lovely. But usually they sit on big cozy sweaters with lots of boxy attitude. Here, Sharp has fashioned a trim (no ease is recommended), sleek, form-fitting piece with gorgeous tailoring throughout. She provides waist shaping/bust darts, beautifully curved armholes, and high sleeve caps; shoulders are shaped, and so is the back neck. Naturally rolled cuffs (on 3/4 sleeves) and hem complete the look. An invaluable basic, gorgeous on its own, but great under a jacket or cardi, too.

Snug fit.
