This sweater pattern is worked flat in four pieces, on two straight needles and sewn up later using invisible mattress stitch. The back and front are the same. A generous 4x4 rib pattern makes this a stretchy, flattering sweater with a bit of cling. It is designed to be worn with 3-6” of ease.

The raglan shaping of the sleeves is continued until a narrow shoulder remains, then further decreases into non-existence - the front and back are joined to form the funnel-shaped neck.
