FREE UNIQUE ROW CHECKER
Here is a contemporary take on the classic raglan sweater. Bands of slip-stitch rib create the raglan detail and provide an elegantly subtle fashion statement. This top down design has no seams to be sewn. It combines traditional stockinette with a fresh approach to shaping the yoke. The neck is shaped and the yoke is worked while raglan pattern bands are created between the front, back and sleeves. At the underarm, the body and sleeve stitches are separated, then each section is worked in the round and finished with a ribbed hem and cuffs. Stitches are picked up along the cast on edge and a ribbed neckband completes the sweater. The result is a timeless creation in a luxurious, natural blend of fibers.
