This is a great everyday layering sweater with plenty of interesting details. It’s knit from the hem up through the raglan yoke and the hood, with minimal seaming. A wide cable runs up the center of the back and continues to the front of the hood, while smaller cables accent the slanted front pockets. Wide rib bands are used as an edging, including an extra long cuff that can either be turned back or unfolded over your hands on especially chilly days. This is a great sweater to showcase unusual buttons.
