The Roxy sweater is a very comfortable knitted top with an elegant V-neck on the backside which goes perfectly with a simple pair of jeans for a casual but special day-to-day wear. It is knit in one piece, top down, with raglan technique and big balloon sleeves. Use soft worsted yarn (cat.4), for example the baby llama wool I found at Juniper Moon Farm. The front piece is shorter than the back and reaches right above the hip line, but feel free to try it on as you knit to get the best fit for your body and the length you desire.
