This designer has a knack for lending a new twist to classic sweater patterns. Here, she's taken the basic raglan pullover, added a bit of width to the lower edge, then drawn in the yoke with a few wide ribs. The result is a comfortable pullover with a subtle and modern bell shape. The sweater is worked in pieces from the lower edges upward. The yarn is used double at a gauge of less than three stitches to the inch. Translation: It's a very quick knit.
