Worked from the bottom up the body features darted waist shaping. Three quarter length sleeves could easily be lengthened. Sleeves and body are joined and the yoke is worked seamlessly, with a pattern of decreases that creates something between a saddle shoulder and a classic raglan. This yoke style follows the contours of the body more closely than a raglan, defining the shoulders in a way that those of you who dislike raglans are likely to find much more flattering. Not only providing a more refined shape, this construction means that the yoke depth corresponds to the body, rather than being dictated by the construction method.
A basic, blank, canvas: simple and flattering as it is, but just a starting point in your hands.
Yarn: DK weight yarn with good elasticity, wool or wool blends are ideal
