Pattern Description:

When I thought about this sweater, the background music in my head was a song by Wilco called, "Sky Blue Sky". So, there you go. A sweater was born. I generally start with a sketch and idea
and match the yarn to it. With this top down raglan, the yarn and color came first. The simple shape, with the yarn over cable edging, makes me think of happy thoughts and days with blue skies.
