Rain Falling on Cedars

The knockout collar is just the beginning!

p9Add a fit that's both relaxed and refined, with a slight A-line,

... top-down one-piece knitting in an innovative modular progression,

... and set-in style sleeves that use my own combination of picking up and shaping the top of the sleeve caps with short rows, then working the remaining sleeve cap together with the sweater body, in raglan fashion.

Slant pockets are knit in.
