Knit a simple, top-down cropped raglan sweater. It’s the perfect layering garment to throw over a pretty frock, or wear it with your favourite high-waisted bottoms. Pop Crop sweater knits up fast and with its straightforward construction; it will make a wonderful first sweater project. Use coordinating or contrasting glitter yarn held together with main colour for all ribbing, creating a subtle marled glitter contrast. Or if you’re not a glitter-knitter, you may prefer to hold kidsilk or a contrasting-coloured yarn as an alternative to the glitter pop.
