I finished this one a while ago.  The yarn is Karabella Aurora 8, I knit the smallest size on size 5 needles, because I didn't get gauge, and didn't want to go to a smaller needle with this yarn.  
I made modifications as I went.  Took out the purl ridges, and made the lace sections shorter.
Pattern can be found at stitchdiva.com
I love top down raglans, and once I am done my current sweater, I will be making many of Stephanie Japel's patterns from "Fitted Knits", I love her style!
