My very first sweater, knitted for my mom. It was knit using a basic top down raglan construction, with progressive 2X2 rib bottom edge.

There is a lace insert on both sleeves and the front.

This sweater is far from perfect (the neckline is a little big and droopy, the bottom edge is too loose, there’s a few mistakes in the increases and decreases and the body is not quite long enough, but I am nonetheless very happy to have successfully knitted my first sweater ever. Yay! :)

I have received a lot of requests for this pattern since I finished it last year, so I am currently trying to write down a pattern using the same features.
