An adorable raglan sweater with mushroom intarsia motif. This sweater is knit in three pieces from the bottom up–the body is knit flat all in one piece with a single side seam and the sleeves are knit separately and sewn on. The button placket and collar are then picked up and knit. The chart is set up so that the mushrooms always appear in the lower corner of the sweater, there will be more white space for larger sizes. (The sweater shown here is a 6 month size.)

I used partial skeins of all of the recommended yarns, and the Spud & Chloe I held double (as it is a fingering weight yarn). For bigger sizes you’ll probably need a full skein of both the red & white, but you don’t really need all that much green and only about 10 yards or so of the beige.
