Ariana is a cute little raglan crop top sweater with a lace pattern body and stockinette stitch sleeves. This design was inspired by the adorable Ariana Grande. I absolutely love her style; she is the perfect mix of cute, girly and sexy and I wanted to embody that in this design. You can also knit additional rounds of the body for a full length sweater but make sure you purchase enough yarn to do so.

20 stitches X 26 rows = 4 X 4 inches in stockinette stitch using size 6 needle
This sweater can be knit in size XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL). This sweater was designed to fit close to the body but it is not tight at all. If you want a slightly more fitted sweater you should knit a size smaller than you usually would. While knitting the body of the sweater it can look quite small due to the elasticity of the lace pattern but I assure you once you put the sweater on it will stretch out. To figure out the best size for you consult the Craft Yarn Council woman size charts. http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/womansize.html
