No Frills Sweater
No Frills Sweater is a simple raglan sweater with a lower neck opening in the front. The fit is a little oversized, but a wide rib on the sleeves and around the waist gives it a feminine look. The simple design of the sweater allows you to experiment with color. It is worked holding the two suggested yarns together for extra warmth and color mixing. No Frills Sweater is worked top-down, so that you can easily try it on as you go to achieve the perfect length of sleeves and body to suit you.
