Notes: Herrera is knitted from the bottom up in one piece then separated to shape the neckline, sleeves, and shoulders. The angular shaping of the stripes on the body is worked with increases and decreases, then the sides are completed with short rows. The neckline and sleeve edges are finished with an integrated i-cord, and an i-cord at the back neck helps maintain the shape of the Front “V” neckline.
