Pattern has been updated as of September 2015: new pattern layout and some small adjustments to instructions.

Pattern Description:
New Concetta has top-down raglan construction and is worked in one piece. Sleeves are split at the underarms and the body is worked in one piece to the hem. Sleeve sts are then transferred to DPNs and worked in the round to the cuff (with slight bell-shaping, although pattern provides instructions on how to taper if you prefer). Stitches are picked up and worked in 2x2 Rib to create the neck ribbing and button bands. Skills used in this pattern: casting on (both at the start of the pattern as well as in the middle of your work), binding off, increasing, picking up stitches.
