I was giddy when my adult daughter asked if I would design a sweater especially for her. She had a very specific list of requirements, though.

  • something that can be worn every day (work, school, home…)
  • machine washable
  • rounded neckline that’s not too tight
  • flattering shape with small splits at the sides
  • sleeves that aren’t too short
  • textured stitchwork
  • pretty color

I think I nailed it, although I won’t know for sure until Christmas when she opens her gift. (Hers is in Forestry. I’m keeping the Burnt Orange one for myself).

The sweater has a repetitive, textured stitch and simply shaped raglan sleeves.

This pattern comes in three women’s sizes and has a finished circumference of 34 (38, 42) inches.
