A top-down raglan pullover is worked in a simple lace pattern with ribbed cap sleeves. The side "seams" are also worked in slimming rib. Worked in the round in one piece for minimal finishing.

Designer Rachel “Ivy” Clarke
Finished Size 22 (24½ , 29½ , 32½ , 38, 40¾ )" bust circumference before blocking; 26 (30, 34, 38, 42, 46)" bust circumference after blocking. Sweater is intended to be worn with zero or negative ease. Sample shown measures 32½ " before blocking, modeled with some negative ease. Sample was not aggressively blocked.
Yarn Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight (100% superwash merino; 360 yd [329 m]/127 g): tanzanite, 2 (2, 2, 3, 3, 4) skeins.
Needles Body and sleeves—size 4 (3.5 mm): 16" and 24" circulars (cir). Ribbing—size 2 (2.75 mm): 16" cir. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions 4 markers (m; 3 in one color and 1 contrasting); stitch holders or waste yarn; tapestry needle.
Gauge 20 sts and 28 rows = 4" in St st and star rib mesh, after blocking on larger needles; 24 sts and 32 rows = 4" in star rib mesh, before blocking.

Correction: page 50. 

There is an extra "sl m" in the instructions for Rnd 4.  The 6th line of the instructions on page 50 should read:  k1f&b, work in rib to 1 st before, omitting the sl m at the beg of that line, since sl m is already given at the end of line 49.
