I love a good raglan. I wear a lot of them, regularly. So when I was designing my own sweater in the make. wear. love. retreat: west coast collection, and thinking about what I wear on the beach, I knew it had to be a raglan. Pescadero is a bottom-up, in-pieces raglan with compound shaping. The raglan shaping changes from armhole up to shoulder – sometimes it’s steeper, sometimes it’s shallower — to better match the body. It’s worked with back waist shaping only, to give it a relaxed, but not boxy, feel. The front has a small, allover lace pattern, and I just love the way it worked out. It’s the single best sweatshirt-y sweater I’ve ever had, and I’ve knit myself a lot of sweaters.
