Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Apogee is a top-down v-neck pullover with cables and raglan sleeves. It is worked from the top-down, in one piece; sleeves are worked in-the-round. The raglan shaping incloses a cable, which travels down the body to create waist shaping, and back up the arm for a fun sleeve detail. Cables flow organically into the ribbing. It's the perfect boyfriend-style cardigan, and includes traditional and tall lengths (5'10" - 6'6"). (The sample design was knit to fit a 38" bust, 6' tall.)
