Embroidery embellishes this graceful sweater. Decrease lines radiating from the neck edge draw attention to your face despite the high neckline in front, and sleeves that flow out from the yoke look great pulled all the way down or cinched up. This sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up to the deep V neckline in the back, then it’s worked flat.
