Relaxation is an A-line sweater with a deep V-neck, nice drape, slim sleeves, and rolled hems.

The sweater is worked bottom-up in separate pieces. The shoulders are shaped with short rows, and then joined by 3-needle bind-off. The neckband is made by picking up stitches with smaller (3.5 mm/ US 4) circular needle, but then worked flat.
