Time arrived in my handknit design career to offer a
straight up sweater! I went back to basics with this one.
Crew neck, straight body, raglan sleeves, with a few yarn
overs to add a teeny bit of sexiness - well, it’s what I’m
known for! Worked from the top down, and completely
seamless! A cardigan and pullover in one pattern, and so
many sizes, you can knit one for everyone in your family!!
