I love bright colors. When I came up with the idea for this sweater, I really had a few very specific details in mind. One, I wanted to use bright colors. Two, I wanted stripes. Three, I wanted the neckline to be lower cut and the shoulder a bit of a faux saddle shoulder, but still a raglan.Well, I think I accomplished that here.
