Amelia, my labor of love – updated for top down construction! This two-color pullover with three-quarter length raglan sleeves, is worked entirely in seeded rib check – a most comfortable, squishy, and delicate fabric comprised of alternating knits and purls. You’ll find this piece is versatile and multi-season, well worth the enjoyable investment in its making. Top down construction allows easy modifications to length, as desired. Below the yoke, bodice and sleeves are knit in the round.
