This is the 3rd pattern in my latest series that requires participation on your part to make it a custom fit.

Knit from the top down in a raglan style I used a 1x1 rib for the body and a woven basket stitch for the sleeves to give this piece just enough interest to keep a simple shape from being boring.

Techniques used: Kitchner bind off, picking up stitches, the increases KFB (knit into the front & back), M1 (make 1) the lifted bar increase both left & right leaning, left & right leaning decreases SSK & K2tog. I created an increase & decrease to maintain a consistent side seam which is fully explained in the pattern.

This pattern is for at least an intermediate level knitter.
Sizes are S/M= 30-35” bust; L=36-40” bust
