Just like the Princess Cocachin, who was living among the members of the royal family pretending to be one of them, this sweater pretends to be a raglan sweater, but has much more to offer. Elegant, stylish, easy to knit sweater, with details which keep you going from the very first to last stitch.

Pattern information

Cocachin is an seamlessly, top-down knitted sweater with an adorable, wandering leaf lace on the sleeves, back and front.
