Directions The sweater is worked in the round from the top down. The initial neckline and raglan increases are worked back and forth in rows. Then stitches are cast on for the front neck and the piece is joined for working in the round. Raglan increases are worked at the cables over the remaining part of the yoke. The work is divided at the armholes, and the body and sleeves are finished separately. Try on the sweater along the way to make sure it fits, or adjust as you go.
