Roller Coaster Raglan is a close-fitting sweater worked seamlessly from the top down, with an interesting, curved raglan shaping.
This type of raglan construction makes the shoulders optically broader, and it can be more flattering for those, who need some „optical tuning” at this area.
You can knit this sweater in one colour, if you want, because the raglan lines give enough interest for an otherwise very simple design, or you can play with multiple colours. The striped sections are wide apart enough to use up some leftover yarns from your non-matching skeins.
