THIS EASY PULLOVER SUCCESSFULLY JUXTAPOSES GRACEFUL, OFF-THE-SHOULDER STYLING and feminine waist shaping with a soft, tubular Merino yarn in a black-and-white colorway commonly seen in menswear (the yarn is named after the Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani, thus the sweater name). The fold-over collar is worked separately, then sewn in place, and can be adjusted when worn to reveal more (or less) of the shoulders.
