You'll fall in love with this sweater!
I found the beautiful stitch pattern used here in a Japanese pattern book, and was in love in an instant. This was one of those times when a stitch pattern spoke to me of the type of sweater it belonged with. I broke the larger center panel into the diamond pattern and mini cables on either side of it, then used these motifs for the sleeves, sides of the body, and raglan columns. I took the twisted rib from the mini cables and used it for the neckband, body, and sleeve trim. A top-down raglan like this is a challenge to design, and it took a while to get all of these elements to play nicely together in 11 sizes (yikes!), but I love the result!
This pullover is worked from the top down to the armholes, with raglan shaping to shape the yoke. Once the yoke is complete, the sleeves are placed on holders, while the body is worked to the bottom edge. Then the sleeves are worked to the cuffs.
The diamond and mini cable patterns are presented in charted format only. Fits sizes XXS-6X.
