This super versatile, top-down sweater is specifically designed to help you put all those DK scraps to good use. The simple yet meditative moss stitch encourages your yarn to do most of the talking, while also allowing for some mind-blowing color blocking ideas. The sweater can also be worked up in a single color, for a timeless wardrobe staple.

Consider this pattern your blank canvas and let your imagination run wild!

The Don’t Scrap That Raglan is a modified raglan, with the raglan lines modified for a better fit at the underarm. The sweater is worked in turned rounds from the top down, featuring short rows to raise the back neck and make the sweater sit nicely on your back.

The printable PDF pattern includes clear instructions and a bunch of tips & tricks and tutorial photos, leaving no guesswork for you. Among the concepts detailed in the pattern are how to work the short rows and how to add the sleeves to the body. The pattern also comes with a detailed round tracker, laying out the stitch count not only for every single round in every single size, but also the stitch counts for each individual raglan panel.

XS – 33.25”
S – 37.25”
M – 41.5”
L – 44.75”
XL – 49.75”
2X – 53.75”
3X – 57.25”
4X – 62.25”
5X – 65.5”

The sizing for this pattern is based on the standard Craft Yarn Council (CYC) measurements.

This sweater is designed to be worn with 5–15 cm (2-6″) of positive ease around the bust.

Measure around the fullest part of your bust and add 5–15 cm (2-6″) to this measurement. Choose a size that is closest to this number, depending on your desired amount of positive ease. If you’re in between sizes, size up.

All my garment patterns are #sizeinclusive up to at least a 60” bust circumference.
Check out the photos from my testers and exact yardages on the blog post, as well as a list of yarn substitution ideas.
