Color inversion sets this elegant pullover apart. A five-color gradient graces the lower torso and sleeves, with a snowfall of stranded colorwork blending the transitions. The yoke is a modified raglan with novel repositioning of the decreases to form plumes of flowing stitches. Gentle A-line shaping and a ribbed neckband wide enough to allow layering make this piece easy to wear and love. Consider a soothing run of greens, blues, or greys as alternative palettes.
