This classic stockinette raglan features a subtle slip stitch detailing down the front of the body, long sleeves, 2x2 ribbed cuffs, and a crew neckline. Designed with the men in your life in mind, but this simple design can be worn by anyone (and is written for 10 different sizes)! This pattern is set up very similarly to The Other Raglan, and I’ve tried to break everything down from set up to bind off for more beginner levels, while including a few new techniques that I think even some more experienced knitters can learn from (or at least I hope!). I had so much fun designing and working this one up for my brother-in-law, and I hope you will too!
Intermediate level (but beginners welcome!)
Written in English and US terms
Skills to know: Knit, purl, increase, decrease, work both flat and in the round, backwards loop cast on, pick up and knit stitches, and how to seam if applicable

Notes on sizing:
This pattern is written for 10 sizes, ranging from 30.25-66.75 in/77-169.5 cm finished bust. It is recommended to choose a size that gives 0-5 in/0-12.5 cm positive ease at the bust. The sweater length is very easily customizable to fit your body and preference! Schematic and more sizing information included in the pattern.
