A wide necked pullover featuring a softly textured pattern on the body with smooth stockinette sleeves, this top is a perfect project for splurge-worthy yarns. Gently fitted to follow natural curves, this pullover is delightful to snuggle up in. While the fit of the body creates an elegant outline, the three-quarter length raglan sleeves add a relaxed, casual feel to the whole project.

The Checked Raglan is worked in the round from the bottom up, with the sleeves being attached to the the yoke using Raglan shaping. A short raglan length ensures a flattering neckline with pretty, squared-off corners.
