This comfortable sweater in 3 sizes features an intarsia trees front and back panel, long sleeves with raglan armholes and a crew neck. It is knitted in separate pieces and sewn together at the end.

It is essential to obtain row and stitch gauge as the raglan armhole is difficult to modify on the fly.The length to the armhole and the length of the sleeves are easily adjustable but the depth of the armhole and width of the sweater are fixed by the raglan instructions.

Use any sport weight yarn. The sample (size S) is knitted with Ice Yarns Primadonna and used 1100 yds.

Body length and sleeve length are adjustable for all sizes.
