Pattern Description:

Rylee is a raglan cardigan that's worked in one piece, from the top down, with minimal finishing necessary. This is one of the first patterns I designed for myself. I really fell in love with all the options I was able to offer when I got to set my own deadlines and design with yarn I chose.

That's why there are two styles of sleeves and two different yarns suggestions. Select bamboo yarn for a drapey, loose fit, or cotton for a structured close-fit. Charted lace patterns are worked on the sleeves, sides and center front. A row of eyelets is created at the waist and is threaded with an I-cord belt.

When the body is complete, stitches are picked up at the center front to create the edging for the buttons and buttonholes.

I hope you enjoy knitting it as much I have enjoyed designing it!
