This cozy raglan sweater is an updated version of your favorite old sweatshirt. With or without the optional folded cuffs and front pocket, it’s perfect for crisp autumn days.
The sweater is worked from the top down in one piece, back and forth to end of the neck shaping and then the rest of the way in the round. The back collar gives the casual look of a hoodie from the front without the bulk of an actual hood.
