Product description

We 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.

This pattern is part of our BT by Brooklyn Tweed pattern line and is our gift to you with the purchase of at least 7 skeins of Tones — simply add your yarn and pattern to the cart and enter code: first_raglan_tones at checkout.
