It’s a simple yet elegant slightly cropped raglan pullover designed to complete outfits with high waisted skirts, jeans and go over dresses. Rustic pattern of twisted stitches gives extra texture to central panels on the front and back of the garment. The pullover has a closely fitted raglan sleeve and is worked bottom up in the round. The ribbing on the hem has an interesting twist to it with stockinette panels in the center and ribbing on the sides.
