Raegan Mesh Sweater

Raegan is the perfect transition piece for the slow shift into cooler weather. Chain stitches and strategically placed post crochets make up the fabric of this sweater giving the front and back the appearance of soft triangular intersections that resemble cable bridge supports. Heavy worsted yarn makes this a relatively fast project, while its unique mesh makes it light and comfortable for cool weather wear.
