Simply stunning elegance. Fun use of color to really pop the edgings and midriff band!

Flattering tunic-length with split hem and longer back hemline looks great with slacks, jeans, or leggings and boots.

It’s easy to adjust hem length to your personal preference as you work top-down on the sweater. This raglan sweater is constructed top-down, in-the-round, and is entirely seamless.

The pattern is written for carrying 2 strands of fingering; however, can use DK throughout if use a marled DK yarn for the top section with matching solid colors for the midriff band and bottom section (navy and natural as in sample).

Mt. Bachelor is a non-active volcano in the Cascade Range of central Oregon and a popular ski destination in Oregon. This butte or mountain was named Mt. Bachelor because it stands apart from the Three Sisters, a group of three volcanic mountains just northwest of the area.
