I have done the baby sweater and have reduced it down to doll size, I have looked for either a free pattern or one to buy pattern to knit the sweater of the knit from the neck down, no seam, raglan sleeve sweater. I have seen the site where it is all charted out, in many sizes, yarns, etc, but that is too much for me to figure out, does any know of a free pattern or one to buy for this sweater? I want to make one for my mom, prefer to do in sport/baby weight 3 ply yarn, size will be small 8-10 woman. thanks for any help

Google "Pure and Simple" top down patterns. I bought the child size and it knit up beautifully.

I know there is one on Lion Brand Yarn site but I can't find my copy now. Perhaps try there?

Does it have to be top down and raglan sleeves?

I have made two of the Kate Davies Owls sweaters and they are super easy and super fast to make. They are seamless and bottom up. And they have been super popular!

Incredible Custom-Fit Raglan
"The incredible, custom-fit raglan is a sweater knit from the neck down in a single piece on circular needles, and it can be made to fit any size from infant to adult. It can be easily adapted to become a cardigan, crew-neck or V-neck. It can be made in any weight of yarn, using any stitch or color pattern that you desire."

The pattern page itself is plain-Jane; it was posted online before high-speed and ease of posting photos. It works according to the measurements you begin with. It may say infant as smallest, but I'm pretty sure it'd work for a doll too.

Then there are the pattern generators:

All for free.

You did not specify if you want crew neck, boat neck, pullover or cardigan.
There are tons on Ravelry.com.
in search box type in topdown, raglan sleeve. Some free. some not free.

I have a raglan sweater wheel that lets you create any size sweater in raglan using any type of yarn. I'll pull it out later today and see if I can help you. My guess is a free pattern exists somewhere on Ravelry, or Lionbrand or Patton and if you can figure out how to search it, it's there.
