This raglan sweater is knit flat in four pieces: the back, front and two sleeves. Each piece is worked from the top down. After knitting the four pieces, you will sew three of the four raglan seams, pick up and work the neckband flat, then sew the remaining seams. This sweater is worked in the 5-Color Stripe Pattern. Each row is a different color. As you work the pattern, carefully oat the colors you are not working with up the edge of you work. These oats will sit to the inside of your sweater, but your seams will look tidy and be easier to sew if the oats are as neat as possible. As you proceed, note that the first and last st of every RS row is work tbl (through the back of the loop). This twists the first and last st and helps to ensure a tidy edge.
