Short Description: This simple top down raglan pullover uses worsted weight linen and a thinner fuzzy mohair/latex yarn for the contrasting stripes. The oversized sweater is meant to be worn with positive ease for a casual effect. Yarn over increases at the back and short row shaping accentuate the generous circumference. You can also utilize the back yarn overs by weaving yarn, ribbon, or leather cording through the holes. Feel free to substitute a variety of other yarns for a woolly winter pullover or make a comfy cotton or linen version for spring and summer.
