    Top-Down Raglan Sweater from Measurements

    This class is currently full. If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please call Customer Service at 800-367-9327. 

    Imagine this: no more dependence on patterns, no more endless purling, no more poor fit, and no more sewing seams! The top-down raglan you knit will be your own design and made to your own measurements. There is no pattern, only a formula into which you plug your numbers. This style of sweater is not only fun to make and very comfortable, but it will also reflect your own unique sense of style. This sweater must be made for the person knitting it and the knitter must have a real sense of adventure.
