Peekaboo Sweater

This sweater comes with two disclaimers:

1) There is only one size available, 38". However it is a top down raglan which means customizing the size is very easy and is only a matter of doing fewer or more increases to get the sweater to fit you right. If you're looking for a place to learn more about top down sweaters, I highly recommend Stefanie Japel's Fitted Knits, I'd be nowhere without it.

However, I believe the 38" is a relatively flexible size. I'm wearing it here with 5" positive ease.

2) I made this from a frogged project so I'm not entirely sure how much yarn it takes. I had three balls of Cotton Ease, but I reckon I probably only used two. If you're nervous, buy three and keep your receipt. If you're stashbusting and only have two, consider ways to cut corners like using a tighter gauge or making the sleeves shorter. Or live on the edge and just go for it. :P
