My second pattern named after a black cat! :)

The Rohmer sweater is a seamless pullover knit from the bottom up. There is no shaping in the body, but short row shaping over the raglan yoke creates a casual, well-fitting wardrobe staple. A visual chart is provided to keep track of the short row raglan section for added ease of knitting. The body and sleeves of the sweater are slightly cropped for a short, boxy look, but notes are provided for those who want to increase length.
