In this design the stockinette yoke combined with a generous grid of open eyelet and fitted ribbing on the body and arms works to expand the chest and diminish the waist. The worsted weight in our cotton blend yields a sweater that's comfortable year-round. This top down design without seams and with invisible raglan increases provides techniques that add up to a pattern that is both interesting and rewarding. Haven’t knitted a top-down sweater before?
