Last week the new Knit.Purl magazine came out and I’ve got a sweater, Terra Garter Raglan, in it. This is the kind of sweater I like to live in, it’s got a few nice details, the yarn is super soft and the shape is flattering. It’s knit from the top down with raglan shoulder shaping. There are wide garter stitch panels at each raglan that continue right down the body.

Dramatic garter-stitch panels flow from the neck, down raglan shaping, and into the body. This easy knit is worked from the top down. Smooth waist contours are emphasized by working them inside the garter-stitch panels.
