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.
View our video walkthroughs to support you in knitting the First Raglan Sweater!
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 free gift to you with the purchase of at least 7 skeins of worsted weight yarn — simply add your yarn and pattern to the cart and enter code: first_raglan_btxbt at checkout.
