A previously published Cropped Raglan Top gained a new look. Cable details joined to stockinette, and gave the cropped knit a bit more drama.
This cabled raglan top is worked in the round with large needles. It has a cabled hem, and cabled details down the sleeves. Raglan-increases give it a comfy feel, but that(tm)s not all. Like its ribbed sister, this cropped sweater has a shorter front hem.
The model sweater, which is knit in size 32, took ~400 grams of yarn. Larger sizes take a bit more yarn, 600 grams should be enough for size 40.
The pattern includes charts for the cables as well as written instructions to the cable patterns. It also includes a photo-tutorial on the phases of construction, along with a few tips on how to change the pattern to Your whim. The pattern is written in Finnish and English.
