Dakini Sweater.

*** Skill Level

A comfy but figure-conscious fit, a softly draped neckline, basketweave bands at cuffs and curved hemline--summer style never looked better. Top-down sweaters give you the opportunity to try on as you knit, and designer Kristen TenDyke keeps the raglan "seams" neat with the nearly invisible lifted increase.
