Pattern Notes ~ This pullover is worked from the top down. The back and sleeves worked in rows and shaped as a raglan for about 3.25″ / 8.5 cm, then stitches are cast-on for the front neckline, and joined to work in the round. The raglan yoke is completed, then the body and sleeves are divided and worked separately. A mock cable panel is worked down the center of the back and front. The rest of the body is worked in Stockinette stitch, and the sleeves are worked in K2, P2 Ribbing. Stitches for the neckband are picked up and worked in ribbing once the sweater is completed.
