Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Knit in the Round
  • K1F&B

Pattern Description:

This sweater is so much fun to make because it knits up super quickly. It's even more fun to wear. This is a seamless top down raglan sweater that can be adjusted to fit you as you go. There is an increase row that creates a cute flare (and helps to flatter your figure!). You can decide to make the sweater with or without buttonholes. If you decide to not make holes, you can just slip the button through the yarn on the other front band. This pattern can be easily adjusted -- make short sleeves or long sleeves, with or without the flare.
