First Raglan Pullover Pattern

First Raglan Pullover Pattern

Regular price $6.00

Brooklyn Tweed purposefully created this raglan pullover as a friendly introduction to garment knitting. Knitting that first sweater can feel intimidating, but this design will walk you through each step with helpful tips and tutorials along the way. 

This approachable sweater is worked in the round, with no seams or assembly required. And even better, its top-down construction means you can try it on as you go to ensure it fits just right. The downloadable companion offers even more options to enrich your sweater shape, like a slimmer sleeve and body shaping to suit your preferred style. Mix and match design elements and find your stride in sweater knitting.

CONSTRUCTION
This pullover is worked from the top down. Knitting begins with the ribbed neckband, followed by a set of short rows worked flat across the back neck to improve neckline fit. The raglan shoulder shaping begins during the short rows and continues throughout the yoke (the upper body). After completion of the yoke, stitches are separated for body and sleeves; each section is worked circularly.
