The Harlequin Sweater has top-down raglan construction and is worked in one piece unsing a thread of sheep wool and a thread of mohair. That means no sewing is needed at the end. Thanks to the top-down construction, you can check the length while knitting your sweater and adjust it easily to your needs.
