The Fuzzy Raglan is a top-down sweater with raglan shaping. It uses only single crochet throughout the entire sweater, and is totally seamless. This pattern includes an “after-thought” method of short-row shaping for a better-fitting garment.
It’s like this fuzzy yarn was created just to make all your wildest 90’s dreams come true and the texture of this yarn makes for the perfect 90’s/early 2000’s inspired sweater. This texture also has an added bonus - it hides the back seam!

Any yarn can be used to work this sweater but please be aware that if you use a smooth yarn, the seam will be slightly noticeable, and the short rows that are added at the end may be noticeable.
Note that self-striping colourways may result in unwanted colour pooling at the back seam since we join + turn each round. Also note that different dye lots of this yarn vary drastically so make sure to double check the dye lots!
