A cropped top down raglan cardigan with an eyelet motif incorporated into the raglan increases. This was designed to be the perfect sweater to wear layered over tunics and dresses, I like it with waisted pants as well. I suggest putting all the stitches on waste yarn and trying the sweater on before you begin the ribbing to be sure you have a length you will like and will enjoy wearing.
This is a very easy and very quick knit with worsted/light aran weight yarn worked at a relaxed open gauge.
We love this in Trendsetter Pure Love, but any of the worsted weight yarns can work. Just ask!

Shown in size 43 1/3, worn with 7” of positive ease.
Selecting the correct amount of ease is a very personal, please choose a size based on your own preferences, a range between 2 to 10” of ease is suggested for this garment.
If choosing to knit this with less ease for a more fitted look please review the measurements on the last page and consider adding more length to the body and plan your yarn purchasing accordingly.*
