Knitting pattern in English for a loose raglan sweater with an airy lace pattern, wide balloon sleeves and a round neck in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | XXL) 3XL.
The sweater is knitted top down with raglan increases. To shape the round neck, you start to knit back and forth in rows until the front part is closed to the round. After separating the sleeves, the body is finished in one piece. Afterwards you are going to knit the sleeves in rounds too. Both body and sleeves are finished with a hem in 1x1 ribbed pattern. Due to the airy lace pattern and the design the sleeves get a balloon-like shape, which is emphasized with the many decreases before knitting the 1x1 ribbed hem for the cuffs.
The fit of the sweater is loose and slightly oversized, the sleeves are balloon-like and tighten at the cuffs. The round neck and the cropped length create a cool look – perfect for warm summer evenings, when the temperatures are low and you need an airy, breezy sweater.
