The Spring Stripes Raglan

This pattern began with a trip to my local Michael’s craft store. I love that place. The sounds, the smells, the colours… It all just makes me so happy.
Anyhow, I was browsing the aisles one day last spring when I saw a display of Caron Cotton Cakes. I instantly fell in love with this yarn! The feeling must have been mutual because 6 balls jumped right into my cart and begged me to take them home! I promised them I would take care of them and turn them into something beautiful. I finally got the chance to fulfill that promise.
I’ve been wanting to write a top down raglan pattern for a while now. I love patterns that are easily customizable. This one can be made in any length you please and has options for short sleeves or long sleeves. I love the way mine looks with the self striping yarn, but it also looks fabulous in a solid colour!
