I knit these two sweaters with the basic top down raglan pattern in the knitalongs.  This was such an easy and quick knit - I definitely plan to make more. 

First one knit with Martifil stripes:


Second knit with a cotton/ecospun yarn I picked up at a fiber fest for 99 cents a skein (used 4 skeins):
Turtleneck all the way up:


Folded down:


Thanks for looking!

Wow!  I really love the first one.  I've never done a sweater top down.  I really should learn.

Thanks!  They're both really cozy.  The sleeves are a bit long on the stripey one, but it works out perfectly for the ribbed cuffs to be turned up (one of them wasn't turned correctly because I was in a rush to get out of the sweater in this 90+ degree heat!).

This is such an easy sweater pattern for a beginner to try or for an easy quick knit for any level.  The striped sweater is knit with Martifil, which is a chunky yarn and I think this was done in under a week with knitting a few hours a day.  The second took a bit longer, but it's a simple pattern.

I really like both of those, but I love the stripy one!  Good colour choices, and it looks really good on you.  It looks very comfy but flattering at the same time.  I might think of trying out that pattern myself!
