Pat­tern Notes

This piece is knit in the round from the top down. It’s worked in typ­i­cal raglan sweater fash­ion, mi­nus the sleeves.

Start­ing with the color of your choice, knit un­til you run out of that color, then join the next color us­ing your pre­ferred method.

When the piece gets too big to fit on the shorter cir­cu­lar nee­dle, switch to the longer cir­cu­lar nee­dle.
