Greta is a perfect top-down raglan sweater for those who like to start with a small and simple Fair Isle pattern. This pattern is easy to knit so that even advanced beginners can complete this sweater without problems.

Feel free to choose your own colors and stripe combinations. My test knitters worked a lot of different variations, as you can see on the photos.
