Arela is a seamed cardigan that yearns to join you on long walks or waits patiently to soothe you when you come home. The front, back and sleeves of this raglan sweater are knit from the bottom up until the armholes are reached at which point the pieces are joined to work the yoke in rows. The shaping allows you to wear the cardigan with buttons in the back or front.
