Finally, something for the guys in a pattern + video tutorial!

(And just enough going on to keep it interesting for the knitter.)
Summertime knitting, and no prior sweater knitting experience needed! This sweater is a top-down raglan style, knit in a light summery yarn. Learning to knit (and fit) this style of sweater will set you up to knit all kinds of other patterns. I’ve sized this sweater from XS to 3X.
Magic loop knitting is a way of knitting socks (or any tiny tube) with a long circular needle instead of double-pointed needles. In this pattern you will see links to seven instructional videos that will explain each section in detail, and help get you through the tricky parts.
Get knitting! This pattern as a good first project for all beginning knitters.
• one skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Worsted (widely available at craft stores)
• size 10.5 US needles (preferably wooden ones)
• a tapestry needle for weaving in your ends
