A fitted cropped sweater knitting pattern with flared statement sleeves.



This simple, cropped sweater is giving all the witchy vibes with these sleeves. The fit is snug on the body and upper arms, and the sleeves flare from the elbow, making the real feature of the design.

The pattern is knit from the top down, using raglan construction so you can try it on as you go, and make the body and sleeves as long, or as short, as you like.

Skills you’ll use when knitting this cropped sweater include knitting in the round, knit stitch, purl stitch, 1×1 rib stitch, increasing and decreasing.
