This cropped raglan cardigan is a great piece for spring and fall, when it’s a little too cool for a tank top but not cold enough for a full sweater. The cotton-blend yarn is soft and lightweight and makes for a comfortable oversized cardigan that looks good worn open or closed. The sleeves are meant to be elbow-length and the body is meant to end at the waist; I designed the sweater to be worked from the top-down so it would be easy to adjust the measurements as needed. I added a wide fold-over collar and a chevron design across the body and sleeves to add interest to an otherwise simple shape.
