Cables define the raglan shaping of this cropped sweater.  Short rows shape the rounded neckline, and five crocheted buttons give closure.  Sized to finished bust measurements, this little sweater has a snug fit through the shoulders and arms, with the body slightly shaped to just below the bust.  For a relaxed fit, size up.
