The combination of yarns shows this unique color I had in my mind for such a soft and cozy, classic top-down raglan sweater. And I just love the simple slip stitch pattern creating a nice grip, without being bulky at all!

THE GREEN is worked seamlessly in rounds in one piece from the top-down with an all over stitch pattern.
After the collar is worked, the yoke is shaped by short rows and raglan increases down to the sleeve separation. The sleeve stitches are then placed on hold, underarm stitches are cast on, and you continue to work the body to the bottom ribbing. After the body is completed, sleeve stitches are placed back on the needles to work in st pattern in the round.
