Raspberries is my interpretation of a classic cardigan with a modern twist.
It has a classic deep V-Neck opening, raglan sleeves and gently shaped waist for a very comfortable and flattering fit. The beautiful lace and mock-cable pattern runs on the fronts, back and sides of the cardigan for a refined look with very little effort. The sleeves are gently tappered to flatter the silhouette.
Raspberries is worked completely seamlessly from the top down with raglan shaping for the sleeves. The lace and mock-cable are charted and the rest of the instructions are written out.

Bust (finished garment): 32 (34, 36½, 40, 44, 48½, 52)” intended with 1-2" positive ease

I love this pattern. It works up easily and the pattern looks a lot more complex than it actually is. I am using the Comfy Worsted in a color close to the one in the pattern. I absolutely LOVE the Comfy yarn! It's so soft and snuggly. (but I will leave further comments on the yarn for the yarn review, lol) I love that you make the entire sweater at one time (other than the button band). While each row gets quite long, I like that you don't finish one part then have the next part to do (not sure about others, but I have a few of those half finished projects laying around. lol That I would get part of the sweater done then wouldn't want to do the next pattern piece. :) ) I will say there are a couple of errors in the pattern. Well, one error and one thing I have changed. The error is that it tells you on a couple of rows to knit to 1 stitch before the marker then to slip the marker. It should read to knit to the marker then slip the marker. The other one, that I changed, is on rows 7 (you repeat this row multiple times). It says to M1L (make one left) 2 stitches before the first marker. I did this for several of the repeats and found that it leaves a noticeable hole where that increase is. So I switched it to M1R (like at the other end of the row) and it resolved that problem. I went back with a piece of the yarn and wove the few holes from M1L together and it's hardly noticeable, but it I wish I had noticed sooner and corrected it after the first row. The two things listed above are the only reason I didn't give the pattern an "Excellent" rating.
