Squared is a casual, oversized pullover with a sporty look and an innovative construction.
There is no sewing, seaming or intarsia involved.

First, the sleeves are worked bottom up (perfect as a giant swatch). Stitches are picked up as you go and put on hold to shape the steps of the ‘squared’ raglan sleeve inset. Then back and front are worked top down with an easy stitch pattern that continues the same idea of the stair shape and forms a waffle* structure. A stair shaped hem finishes the body. Finally a small rolled neck band is added in a contrasting color.
