This seamless raglan cardigan is knit from the top down and is easily customizable by trying it on and fitting as you go! It uses fitting calculations similar to those in our popular My Favorite Sweater pattern, but it also has a picked up border with mitered corner shaping to make a nice finish around the collar, hem and front button ban--with an added bonus of darted shaping! The pattern booklet walks you through taking body measurements and guides you as you create a cozy cardi with the fit of your dreams!
