From the authors: “This easy raglan pullover is knit in one piece from the top down with no sewing. The yarn over increases used make counting the rounds easy but you have a choice of increasing with or without holes.”

This is the basic pullover pattern; all other pullovers in the book are variations on this pattern. This basic version has stockinette hem, cuffs, and collar. You can easily modify it by adding ribbing if desired.
