Collar question

No sooner had we published our e-letter on Katrine yesterday, than we had a query about the sweater’s collar. How does it looked open and lying flat? Hmm. We don’t know because it never occurred to us to unbutton the neck on Cecily’s cozy cardigan. Perhaps because we were shooting bright and early—and coldly–on a local beach. The more buttoned up, the better.

So, in lieu of the collar worn in other ways, I offer detail shots that might be interesting. Please note the way the raglan shoulder flows into the collar. Or, more correctly put, the collar flows into the raglan shaping– for the sweater is knitted collar to hem. Note also the smooth line of stitches along the raglan line…

and the separated decreases/increases that shape the sides.

Note also, how Bhaji, our brave model, does not look particularly cold. A feat, indeed.
