Julissa

Julissa is a modern raglan sweater knit seamlessly from the top down using a worsted weight yarn. A flattering neckline, beautiful cable and lace details, three-quarter length sleeves and a bit of waist shaping all together create this feminine, easy-to-knit top. Wear with your favorite pair of jeans and a complementary colored tee or camisole underneath.
