Yarn support for this design was kindly provided by Shibui Knits.
Incredibly soft and cozy raglan sleeved sweater, worked seamlessly from top down. The work begins with the ribbed neckline, followed by short row shaping. The rest of the upper body is worked in the round, working the Arrow pattern on front. When the upper body is completed, sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the body is worked in the round towards the hem. Sleeve stitches are then placed back on needles and the sleeves are worked in the round towards the cuffs.
Please note that for sizes XS and S, there are 3 Arrows on front, for larger sizes, there are 5 arrows.

The sample is worked holding together Shibui Knits Silk Cloud and Shibui Knits Staccato but you can work this sweater with a single thread also. In this case, I recommend using a DK-weight yarn.

The Arrow pattern is both charted and written and the pattern includes a photo tutorial for German short rows.
