Worked seamlessly from the top down, this sweater features a raglan yoke, a lovely textured pattern band right before the bottom ribbing, and in-the-round construction for both body and the sleeves. The yoke begins with short-rows worked back and forth, then joined to work in the round with raglan increases. Twisted stitches add texture to the raglan lines. As this pullover is worked from the top down it is advisable to try it on from time to time to check the length and overall fit. The length and width of the yoke are easily adjustable by adding/reducing increases, or adding/reducing underarm stitches.
Intended to be worn with 3 to 5” (7 to 12 cm) of positive ease at bust. Shown in 40”/100cm.
