All sorts of vertical elements, along with a face-framing fully fashioned V-neck, make this sweater universally flattering. Plus, a bit of waist shaping will ensure it won't look like you're wearing your boyfriend or husband's oversized sweater. Embrace your curves! In this updated classic, the V-neckline is incorporated into the knitting of the garment using fully fashioned decreases. This designer trick creates beautiful lines that frame the neck and draw the eye up, flattering the face. And, since there's no neckline trim to pick up and work later, you'll finish your project faster. Bonus!
