A shimmery thread encased in a rayon-blend yarn highlights the play of cables and twists in this fitted V-necked pullover. To create the dramatic twist at the neckline, the lower and upper front pieces are knitted separately, then the upper bodice is twisted one full turn before it's grafted to the lower half. The three-quarter-length sleeves are subtly decorated with a simple twist at the cuff, accomplished in a different way. A center cable completes the theme on twists.
