ABOUT

The Branch Out Raglan is a lightweight, unisex sweater that is filled with drool-worthy texture. Front post stitches cover the front and back sections, creating a stunning design and back loop stitches are used throughout to provide effortless drape. The finished piece fits closely around the neck, loosely around the body, and fitted around the arms. Plus, it's worked from the top down, so you can totally try it on as you go!








WHY I LOVE IT


1) It's unisex. The neutral design makes it perfect for both men and women, so you can get all matchy matchy with your spouse!


2) It's lightweight. I live in Georgia, USA and, as I'm sure most of you already know, it doesn't get THAT cold here, so I really appreciate a sweater that I'm not pouring sweat in and can wear more than 2x a year.


3) The way it fits. So, raglan style sweaters are kind of magical in this way. Since the yoke has consistent increases, there are no "waves" or "ruffles" of extra fabric that bunch up and the fit in the underarm is just *muah* perfection!


4) The seam is pretty much invisible! It begins, on the yoke, by following the right back diagonal raglan line and is then hidden on the body portion on the side, under the right arm.


OPTIONS

Since this garment is worked from the top down, you can make the sleeves and body as long or as short as you want! I even give a tip on how to make the waist area more fitted. (Scroll all the way down to see all of the different versions my incredible testers made!)
