Pattern Description from MarnieMacLean.com: “Named for a little seaside town in Oregon, Astoria features a top-down seamless raglan design, body darts, mid-length sleeves, and the focal point, a striking stranded colorwork band.

This piece is designed with no ease to hug the body, but you can always knit a size larger or omit the body shaping if you prefer a relaxed fit. You can also knit the body or sleeves longer. However, keep in mind that these modifications will require extra yarn.
