This sweater is warm and snuggly, a bit like wearing a big hug! Knit from the top down in one piece, work begins with the cowl neck and then moves on to the raglan shoulder shaping. Lace details run all the way down the raglan into the body. The gentle flow of the a-line can be extended if you want a longer, more flowing sweater.
