A simple raglan short-sleeved sweater knit from the top-down in one piece. Mud season is the 5th season here in Maine, in between winter and spring. This sweater was inspired by mud season-the deep “muddy” brown color, the short-sleeves (because winter is finally over!), but the wool/alpaca blend still keeps you warm (because it’s not quite spring!)
