Have you been searching for the perfect, beginner sweater to wear over leggings in the Fall, or over yoga pants on those lazy days? Finally!! A sweater that is both cute, and has an oversized comfy look!

This raglan is knit top down, using circular needles worked in the round. The sleeves are put on holders, and the rest of the body is knit first.

I recommend before starting this knit, you take out an oversized sweater that you enjoy the fit of, and measure across the front of it. I would then take a look at the finished garment measurements and determine what size you would like to knit.

There are short rows used in this sweater.

The sleeves are knit at a tighter gauge than the body of the sweater. Please note that the needle size used for the sleeves should be 2 US needle sizes / 1 mm smaller than the gauge-size needle used to knit the body.

Needles
(Smaller needle) Body: US size 8 / 5 mm 16”, and 32” / 40 and 80 cm circular needles to be worked in the round. Sleeves: US size 6 / 4 mm 9” / 23 cm circular needle or DPNs.

(Larger needle) Body: US size 10 / 6 mm 16” and 32” / 40 and 80 cm circular needle to be worked in the round. Sleeves: US size 8 / 5 mm 9” / 23 cm circular needle, or DPN’s.
