No Frills Sweater
This knitting pattern is in English.
No Frills Sweater is a simple raglan sweater with a lower neck opening in the front. The fit is a little oversized but a wide rib on the sleeves and around the waist gives it a feminine look. The simple design of the sweater lets you experiment with color. No Frills Sweater is worked top-down and you can therefore easily try on the sweater as you go to achieve the perfect length of sleeves and body for you. The length measurements in the pattern are standard measurements and merely a guideline. Depending on the choice of yarn the sweater will get bigger as you use it. If you want to keep the neck opening tight you can sew a thin elastic on the inside of the neck rib.
