This chunky-weight raglan has a random geometrical
pattern on the front that’s been set into a stocking stitch
ground. I designed the pattern “free hand” following a
simple rule of no more than 4 purl squares (4 sts x 5
rows each) for each horizontal or vertical line. The chart
has been scaled up and down to be proportional in all
the sizes. However, in the spirit of random play, feel free
to work up your own variation of stacked checks on your
sweater.
