This angora-blend, crewneck pullover is from Ann Budds book, The Knitters Handy Book of Sweater Patterns (Interweave Press, 2004). Worked in the round from the bottom up, the stripes begin an inch or so before start of the armhole and continue into the yoke. The raglan "seams" that extend from the armhole to the neck are made by working mirrored decreases adjacent to each other. The stacked decreases form prominent diagonal lines and make the stripes bend as they move from the bodice to the sleeve sections of the yoke.
