FREE UNIQUE ROW CHECKER
Here’s a sweater with a stitch pattern that takes the simple garter stitch adds a slip stitch, and turns it into a new eye-catching texture. The appealing stitch pattern is used with a pairing that combines a solid and a compatible hand dyed tonal version of the same yarn. As a top down design incorporating the invisible raglan increase there are no seams to be sewn. Stitches for the body and sleeves are separated then worked in the round to the waist and wrists. Finally, the neck band stitches are picked up along the cast on edge and worked in rib. The result is a nicely tailored sweater that is a delight to knit and that feels just right.
