When I first designed Little Momo, I had the
little ones in mind for this top down raglan. But, the more I thought about
it, the more I wanted to upsize it for adults. I
made a few changes. I modified the sleeve, body
length and eliminated the buttons. The cables
give the classic shape some added interest.

I strongly suggest you do a washed and blocked gauge swatch. The silky merino is prone to growth when blocked. It’s just the nature of this wonderfully luxurious blend. Any difference in gauge will affect the size and amount of yarn used.
