Pattern Notes

This is a classy, top-down raglan style pullover with 2-3 inches of ease which is worked in the round on circular needles. The body of the sweater is worked in stockinette stitch with a large cable motif running down the front. Like the original Gigi, the sleeves are worked in reverse stockinette. The collar is worked vertically and is adorned by a single button closed with an i-cord loop.
