This simple raglan cardigan deserves to be a staple in every knitter’s wardrobe. Worked in one piece from the top down, the sweater features reversible front borders and elegant shaping. Faux raglan, back and doubled side seams add visual interest. The optional longer sleeves include thumb openings which make the cuffs function like built-in fingerless mitts - perfect for those cooler days!
