Day 269 and Raglan
I think this would qualify as a dickie. I loved the giant cowl I made about a week ago most of all for the way it opened up and made room for the shoulders without stretching or curling up and the key of course is increasing!
I recommend this highly as a gateway to sweaters for beginners or as a very speedy giftable. It's basically the beginnings of a raglan sleeve top down sweater and could easily be modified into it.
Loops and Threads Incredible (held double) one skein
Size 15 needles, circular
PM: Place marker
SM: Slip marker
M1R: Insert left needle from back to front below the ladder between stitches of the previous row. Knit the stitch.

Cast on 44, place marker, and join in a circle. Be careful not to twist the cast on edge

Complete row 29, then bind off in purl.
If you'd like to make this even longer, work more of the row marked with the # sign.
