D E S C R I PTION 

The Coloring Book Raglan was inspired by a relaxed sweatshirt fit from my youth. This updated and elevated classic knit is a versatile worsted-weight raglan that comes with long fitted sleeves, ¾ wide sleeves, cute preppy edge stripes, body and sleeve stripes, and two body lengths. Along with the possibility of just knitting the pattern plain, there are at least 14 possible permutations in the pattern itself... and more if you’re willing to make some mods. All versions have an underarm ribbing detail.
