A classic seamless raglan, with a twist. Some yarns cry out for glorious cables and texture, and Sincere Sheep’s worsted weight Cormo is one of them, combining next-to-skin softness, durability, and the stitch definition to make textured stitches really shine. Eye-catching diagonal cables make for an intriguing look and a flattering silhouette, while minimal shaping in the body and simple shaping in the yoke makes the construction straightforward. The slightly abbreviated length—which ends at the high hip—keeps the look modern and polished. Lighter shades let the cables take center stage, while bolder shades let Brooke’s beautiful naturally-dyed colors grab the spotlight.
