Classic V-neck sweater with little details that make it special. Beautiful chain-like raglan increases and faux seams on body and sleeves, along with endless possibilities in color combination, make this a piece to knit over and over again.
The sweater is worked in four different colors (shown in gradient set), the upper body back and forth, the rest of the body and sleeves in the round.
