The traveling-stitch sine wave down the front and back of this raglan pullover finds its rhythm as it moves back and forth across a twin slipped-stitch axis. Thoughtful details such as reverse-stockinette rolled cuffs and hem, an I-cord neckline finish, the elegant keyhole at the front neck, and fully fashioned A-line shaping add up to an irresistible sweater.
