Looking for short sleeve sweater
I am looking for a short sleeve fitted raglan sweater. I would love to find one that is top down--just to try something different


I'm searching for a sweater to justify my upcoming purchase of [i]worsted shine [/i]!!


any ideas, it doesn't necessarily need to be free--if a good pattern I'll buy.

I don't know if these are fitted enough for you, but this is where I got my sweater pattern. I think most of them are top down raglans. There are a few short sleeves down the page.

This is maybe more of a tank top than a short-sleeved shirt, but I made one last month and it is a very nice, easy pattern. Top down, raglan, fitted, very straight forward.

I used regular 'Shine' (ie. not worsted) for it and it came out great!
