Ladies Classic Raglan Pullover

This classic style raglan pullover is knit from the top down. Designed to fit close to the bust with subtle waist shaping for a flattering fit. Roomy sleeves and generous length make this a very comfortable sweater. Fitted enough to wear under a coat yet roomy enough to pull over long sleeves or collared shirts. Offered in a wide range of sizes and written in a Fill-in-the-Blank style format for simplicity and greater readability. The Classic Raglan Pullover pattern creates a perfectly classic style sweater and is also ideal for use as a foundation for limitless modifications.

Although this pattern has been named a ladies pattern, it is by no means gender exclusive and can be knit by and for anyone. The pattern’s name includes gender simply to indicate that North American industry standards for women were used during drafting. A version using men’s standard body measurements can be found here. I hope you are able to find a sweater for your own unique body type somewhere within the scope of these two patterns.
