Designed by Rachel Brockman
A slouchy fit and a statement cable are just two of the fine details in this dramatic sweater. The front and back are knit from the bottom up in pieces. The center front cable is split at the neckline and continues up to frame each side of the neck. These pieces continue beyond the front as back neck extensions and are sewn down to the back neck. Sleeves are knit flat from the upper arm downward. They are knit straight with no shaping until just before the cuff, creating an oversized, almost bell shape.
