Range by Yiğitcan Vatansever is one of those sweaters— the kind that you live your life in, the kind that becomes your second skin and lives on the top of your sweater chest (if it even makes it back!). This beautifully conceived design is inspired by snow covered mountain ranges, featuring panels of mountain peak motifs on the hem and up the sleeves created with slipped traveling stitches. This gender-neutral raglan is worked in the round from the bot- tom up seamlessly, the turtleneck is picked up and worked in the round with an optional tubular bind off.
