The designer found her inspiration for this tunic in the motifs in Russian architecture. A simple shape worked in stockinette stitch with a deep V-neck is embellished with patterned inserts along the front opening and at the cuffs. Knitted in a silky yarn in a solid color, the decorative stitches stand out nicely. The sweater's easy fit flatters any figure.
