Norah Gaughan likes to experiment with sweater construction. In this wrap-style pullover, the shaped ribbed band that borders the V-neck extends along the lower edges of the sweater to the center back where the ends cross before returning to tie in front. The back is worked in two pieces to the underarms, forming a slight center split that accommodates the crossing ends of the tie. Worked in a luscious pink merino/silk yarn, this sweater is decidedly feminine without being fussy.

Review by Susan Yakhamam

The pattern was easy to read and easy to knit. I love how the sweater turned out, but it was a chore knitting that long sash. If you don''t mind knitting about 10 ft of K2,P2 ribbing, this pattern will suit you just fine.
