Selima by Susanna IC is a fresh take on the oversized sweater trend. This top-down raglan is worked in an all over lattice cable that is easy and soothing. The sleeves are balanced in a simple stockinette stitch, making the fit easily adjustable as you knit. Light, ethereal Weld makes for a delightfully wearable sweater, with beautiful drape and a lovely next-to-skin feel.
