Remember my rant about this sweater pattern? Well that's cause this is how a raglan sweater is supposed to go. You start here
and in a couple rows you're here
and in no time it's done!
Which is why it's ludicrous to make the parts separately and sew them together. Even if you want the sleeves to be a different color, you can do colorblock/intarsia. So who knows.
More on this sweater after the buttons, decorations, and blocking are finished...
