Gauge: 19 sts and 28 rows = 4" in Stockinette Stitch. 46-st
Front & Back Cable Panel = 6.25" wide, after blocking.

Notes: This sweater is a compound raglan constructed from the top down in one piece. The compound raglan allows for a more flattering fit because the rate of increase varies to more accurately follow the shape of the body. It increases more rapidly between the neck and shoulders and at the end to curve around the underarm, but more gradually in the section in between. It is modeled with a slight negative ease, but if you desire a looser fit make a size that measures slightly larger than your bust. And of course the sleeves and body can be easily lengthened by adding more rows. Be sure to swatch the collar, depending on yarn choice it may tend to ruffle. If this happens go down 1 or 2 needle sizes for the collar. The Malabrigo worsted used in the sample did not ruffle.
