Everyone needs an afghan or two to throw over the couch for chilly days, and the more basic, the better. The Essential Effortless Afghan is a super-simple knit blanket pattern that can be adapted to fit any color scheme or decorating theme.
This raglan sweater, knit from the top down, is a real one piece work. You start with a cable neckband first, keep on with some short-rows to finish the neckline. Easy cables underline the arms and the body line.
