Details :
(Smaller needle) Body: US size 5 / 3.75 mm circular needles between 16 and 40” / 40 and 100 cm to be worked in the round. Sleeves: 9” / 23 cm circular needle, DPNs or preferred method of small circumference knitting.

(Since the collar can be worked with a 16”/40 cm circular, as the knitting grows, you may want to transition to 24”/60 cm, then 32”/80 cm, then 40”/100 cm circular needle to be worked in the round.)

Notions :
Stitch markers (4 total; 1 unique for BOR, 3 to mark the raglans); scissors; row counter (suggested); darning needle to weave in ends; waste yarn or stitch holders to hold your sleeve stitches.
Notes :
This raglan-style sweater 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 a sweater that you enjoy the fit of, and measure across the front of it from underarm to underarm to determine the size (multiply the measurement by 2 to get the full circumference of your sweater). I would then take a look at the finished garment measurements and determine what size you would like to knit.

This is a perfect “first sweater” to knit. This sweater uses the basic raglan top down construction, adding just a little colorwork embellishment on the bottom.
