A roomy, comfy pullover inspired by your favorite well-worn baseball shirt. Made in beautiful Chelsea Luxe DK yarn, it’s soon to be your favorite sweater. Designed by Shaina Bilow exclusively for Chelsea Luxe yarns.

Construction Details
This pullover is worked from the top-down in the round. Start with the ribbed crewneck collar, work short rows for some neck shaping, and then begin increasing for the raglan yoke. After splitting for the armholes, work the oversized body and decide if you want to have a bit of extra length in the back before working the bottom border. Sleeves are picked up from holders and worked on DPN. The pattern is written for 3/4 length sleeves. There are notes to guide you through adjusting the sleeve length to your own preferences.
