Classic Raglan Pullover

When I realized that there was a gap in Elsie’s hand knits I dropped everything and even unraveled a bit of my WIP (this yarn was meant to be a pair of French Press Felted Slippers for me).

I really wanted to knit something simple and classic, raglan sweaters knit from the top down are my absolute favorite, I also wanted to use this opportunity to achieve the perfect the fit seeing as I seem to work with this yarn often and hope to write a pattern for ladies and maybe even one for the gents.
