Rain is a seamless top-down compound raglan with the lines following your natural shoulder line. Minimal neckline shaping that looks something between round neck or boat neckline and longer armholes for a relaxed fit.

The elongated slip stitch pattern on the main body is mirrored on the sleeves and adds the graphic element to the sweater basic stockinette stitch fabric. Minimal shaping in the body will get you into relaxing zen knitting rhythm and the slip stitch pattern will keep you interesting throughout the project – is so satisfying to watch how these “stitch drops” are growing on your needles…

For your convenience raglan increases are written individually for each size.
