This pattern also comes in a cardigan version.

Seli is a seamless cropped top-down raglan featuring embellishment on the cuffs, neckline, hem and sleeves. The cuffs, hem and neckline have corrugated rib and an Estonian knitted braid called a Kihnu Vits. The sleeves have descending motifs created using the inlay technique called Roosimine. The sweater is worked seamlessly by placing sts for the sleeves on hold using waste yarn or a holder while completing the body.
