Description: "The shirt-style sweater is In".
Perfectly plain classic raglan sweaters in polo-shirt style with collar and long sleeves. The sweaters are knitted in stocking stitch but they refer to it as "continental stocking stitch", by which they mean knitting into the back of the stitch on the knit rows, purl rows as normal.
The pattern has 2 holes punched in the side for keeping in a loose-leaf binder.
