Knitting should never feel like a chore, and our Ribbed Raglan Pullover is designed to make sure it doesn’t! A simple-as-pie construction, you’ll start from the top and knit down in just-interesting-enough 2×2 rib… No edgings, no seaming, no shenanigans.

We love the easy details along the way: a flattering little half-funnel collar and graphic raglan increases, plus three sleeve length options: short, mid (shown here), and long.

Depending on which sleeve length you choose and where you live, the Ribbed Raglan Pullover is a perfectly four-season sweater in our Sweetgrass superfine alpaca and organic cotton blend. A real beauty in its natural, undyed state, it’s also lightweight, soft, and wonderful to hold in the hand… Perfect for good-time knitting!
