Chicory was inspired by a vintage sweater design. The straight silhouette and rolled hems make this a casual wear-everywhere piece, with just a touch of patterning along the raglan shoulder lines to keep it interesting.

NOTES
Much has been written about the fact that traditional raglan shaping—in which you increase along the raglan “seams” every other round, on both the sleeves and the body—doesn’t always fit or flatter every body type. This sweater has different rates of increase on the sleeves vs. the body, which means you have to pay a bit more attention while knitting it, but results in a more natural fit. However, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to customize your fit even further, this pattern is easily adaptable to use compound raglan shaping, since the increases happen independently of the stitch pattern along the raglan seams.
