Introducing Crosshatch – a raglan pullover with a wide boat neckline. Worked from the top down, its fit is slim overall with minimal ease and gentle waist shaping. 1x1 rib frames shaped stockinette on bodice and sleeves, trimming neckline and hems, and running lengthwise along its sidelines. Verticals remain uninterrupted as shaping is made on each side of these ribbed columns.
It’s a fun, quick, and stylish project – enjoy!
