“Skimback” is a loosely fitting buttoned cardigan with a modified raglan construction. Worked top down with almost no finishing, it features wide ribbing, cable panels that continue from the back towards the sleeves, extending down to the cuffs, and more cable panels placed on the back which move towards the center to mimic waist shaping.

As in the “Laceback” and “Backtracked” sweaters, this design, too, uses different shaping for the Fronts and Back.
