The casual comfort of a cozy raglan is elevated by unusual construction and bold cables that ascend the torso on the bias to create flattering lines. Wake is worked in pieces of irregular shape—the back with a wide hem that wraps around to the hipbones and forms a graceful curve worked with short rows, the front narrow at the waist with an incisive V-neck—and then seamed to achieve a raglan style with an asymmetric hem that’s higher in the front. The edges are left almost raw for clean, simple finishes.
Light and warm in Loft, Wake is an effortless garment to wear with trousers and button-down shirts. We styled ours with six inches of positive of ease, but you could knit a size close to your actual measurements to create a smart piece to pair with skirts as well.
