The Cinnabar Sweater is a top-down, raglan constructed garment with 3 fit and 2 sleeve styles to choose from, so you can make your dream sweater! Inspired by my love of texture and classic “go-to” styling, the simple texture featured throughout the sweater makes ultra squishy fabric! Special techniques features in this pattern are: knit stitches, purl stitches, left & right increases, i-cord bind off and wrap and turn short row shaping.

Finished Measurments
