Pattern Description from The Best of Interweave Knits: “The not-so-subtle shaping and shoulder-hugging neckline of this raglan pullover are design elements that hark back to the 1950s when garments called attention to the feminine form. What’s new in this sweater is the luxurious loft of the chunky cashmere/merino yarn and the single. oversize, horseshoe cable. The graceful curves of the sweater’s silhouette, the wide-neck, fold-over collar (it can artfully slide over the shoulder, if you like), and the buttery soft yarn make an elegant sweater that you can dress up or down.”
