Pattern description from Stitch ‘n Bitch:

Until recently, I had knit things only for my brother’s children of for my son. One day, while visiting my local yarn show, I admired a striped sweater I saw hanging in the display window, and the yarn shop owner - who had by then become my knitting buddy - told me that I could easily knit it for myself. I picked out yarn and she pulled out her calculator, showing me how to estimate yarn amounts for the project. With a bit of help from her and my knitting books, I came up with an easy pattern and knit the sweater. For the first time ever, I had a custom-made sweater! What I love about it is that it has all the colors I’ve always wanted in a sweater, but couldn’t find until I came up with it myself. And it’s the only sweater I’ve ever owned that fits me the way I want - thanks to raglan armholes, waist shaping, and the drape of the cotton yarn.
