Snowfall Raglan- Blog Post
About The Pattern
It’s here, it’s here, it’s FINALLY here! I’m so excited to share our latest pattern with you all! This size inclusive color work raglan style sweater is available in 4 child sizes (18 month through 8 child) and 8 adult sizes (X-Small through 5X-Large). You can get the free adult sizes here and the free child sizes here.
You can also purchase the inexpensive PDF with all the perks on our Ravelry and site shops. Due to the restrictions of Etsy, we have not been able to list this pattern there, but are working on getting it listed shortly. This PDF is color coded per size and printable for easiest follow along and 50% of all proceeds are donated to ending human trafficking.
This pattern is definitely an intermediate level pattern at minimum, and I do recommend experience with color work and raglans for the smoothest experience. That being said, I did have some testers make this sweater with no experience with either, and they felt even more proud of their first completed top-down sweater because of how complex this is.
And because I feel so passionately that everyone should be able to make our patterns if they want to try, I have created a short length film for you (because is it even a tutorial anymore when it’s over an hour long? 🤪) to help you along with making this pattern. This is a complex pattern, and unlike any I’ve ever designed before, so I wanted to make sure I was arming you all with every tool possible before starting this beaut.
