**About**
This size inclusive, squishy sweater makes the most of a special, speckled yarn. With a comfortable and easy-to-wear silhouette, all-over cable texture on the cropped body, and quick knitting stockinette sleeves, this sweater knits up fast to create a sweater that's easy to reach for every day.

**Construction**
To achieve the best fit, front, back, and sleeves are knit flat and seamed. Tubular cast-ons and bind-offs create stretchy and durable hems, cuffs, and collar.

**In this pattern**
This pattern includes an appendix with bonus materials - instructions to knit the perfect swatch, yardage and notes on creating a full-length sweater, and tips for adding width to the front to create a sweater with more ease in the front.

Progress charts (line by line counts showing stitches decreased for the raglan shaping and the neck shaping) are included for the front and the back.

This pattern is split into two PDFs, with nine sizes in each document.
For additional information about this pattern, including a download of the complete schematic, additional photos, and credit for testers, please visit the pattern page.
