Why not knit a raglan sweater flat?

I’ve started another sweater. It’s a cardigan, so it really makes sense to knit it flat. The pattern I’m following isn’t named very creatively. It’s called “Cabled Cardigan” by Hayfield.

As usual, I didn’t buy the suggested yarn. Instead, I’m using Drops Nepal, because I got it on sale. I really like the color and I’m enjoying how this sweater’s stitch patterns look:

One of the refreshing things about this sweater is that the background isn’t your typical reverse stockinette or seed stitch. Instead, it’s rice stitch. The cables, nine stitches wide, are separated by bars of slipped ribbing. This cardigan will knit up pretty fast and it’s an easy project.
