Pattern Notes
• Top-down construction
• Raglan-style seamless sleeves
• Pocket is attached seamlessly, knit first separately and then joined.
• Collar is picked up and knit, then folded so there is no wrong side.

This sweater features just a bit of colorwork that is broken up into raglan sections. Brochan Sweater was not substantively changed for the adult version, Brecken. However, the colorwork pattern goes a bit deeper into the yoke and covers the larger circumference of the chest. The collar is roomier, has no wrong side, and will keep you cozy after you’ve hit the slopes.
