This wide-neck raglan pullover is inspired by spring and first warm days of the season filled with sunshine and breeze. The name for this design was suggested by one of the designer’s test-knitters, who noticed a close similarity between the lacework in the sweater’s front and Ruscus, a plant native to where she lives.
