Niji Pullover by Eri Shimizu Yarn Kit

      

niji - Rainbow in Japanese - is a raglan pullover worked from the top down, designed for a friend’s workshop. I was very impressed the first time I knitted a top-down raglan garment and have been hooked on knitting ever since. I was so happy to have knitted a piece of clothing that I wanted to knit many more times, using different yarns and colors.
The pattern offers options for the collar and hem, but I am sure that once you have knitted one, you will easily be able to make the changes you want to make your own pullover!
