This charming sweater, worked in a delicious alpaca silk blend, gracefully hugs your curves. It’s worked top down and seamless, with raglan shaping. A post-spike-stitch pattern at the yoke and hem adds interest, and vintage buttons add a touch of glamour to this short-sleeved top that’s fun to make and fl attering to wear.
