The base of the Whidbey Sweater is a straightforward and great fitting compound raglan worked in the round from the top down. Starting with a folded collar, the yoke is worked with increases at varying rates to create a curved raglan line that is both comfortable and flattering. After separating stitches at the end of the yoke, both the body and sleeves are worked in the round in plain stockinette until your desired length, ending in cozy ribbed hems.
