Pattern Description:

Ramona cardigan has top-down raglan construction, a crew neck and slight waist shaping. It features a fake 'seam' along the sides, giving the appearance of a seam as well as providing a little more structure than a typical seamless sweater.

Slightly cropped and well-fitted, this cardigan is a quick and easy knit. Detailed pattern instructions make this a perfect 'first sweater' project for the beginner knitter. More advanced knitters will also enjoy the pattern as a relaxing knit.
