This raglan sweater features a cool double sleeve detail - the long sleeve is knit in a contrast colour and sewn into the cap sleeve under the ribbing. The back, front and cap sleeves are knit flat, while the long sleeve is knit in the round. The high-crew neckline is finished with an i-cord edge.
This is a suitable pattern for advanced beginners, comfortable with cables, and basic increases and decreases.
This would also make a great short-sleeved summer top worked up in a worsted cotton or cotton blend yarn.
Choosing a size: This sweater is designed to be worn with 0-4” of positive ease in the bust, meaning you can wear it close-fitting or a bit larger than your actual measurements.
