Chantalle

Chantalle is an elegant, fitted raglan pullover knit seamlessly from the top down using a sport weight yarn. The decorative lace collar, which uses an easy-to-memorize stitch pattern and is worked at the same time as the yoke, lends stunning detail and visual interest to an otherwise stockinette fabric.
