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