I like to think of Olori Sweater Tee as the perfect transitional wear. It is a simple top-down raglan project that is suitable for a garment newbie. If you do not like to be stuck on sleeve island, this project is for you! You knit your short sleeves as you go!

As a fun fact, Olori means Queen in Yoruba language, a Nigerian dialect. As this is my very first garment design, I believe this pattern would pave the way for many more to come!

I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did, and still do!

Happy Knitting xo
