This is a top down, raglan-yoke-style construction, knit in an unconventional way. The yoke is separated into two pieces: back/sleeves and front. The laced cords pull the raglan yoke back together for a flattering upper body. The open sides allow for free range of motion. Pair it with boots, skinny jeans and a turtleneck sweater.
