Details

This raglan jumper is knitted seamlessly in the round from the bottom up. Sleeves and body are worked separately to the underarms, then joined to knit the yoke. Short rows are worked to shape the neckline before finishing with a rolled neckband. All cable motifs are charted, and are worked over a six-row repeat.


This jumper is ribbed all over so it has a lot of stretch. Intended to be worn with 2-4 inches of positive ease based on the relaxed gauge, choose a size down (zero or negative ease) if you prefer a snug fit.
