Product description

A comely sweatshirt to reach for over and over again, Bedford remains effortlessly sophisticated when lounging at home and wears comfortably cozy on an adventurous day out. Columns of mock cables grow out of the ribbed hem for allover texture that reads well in any hue, while reverse stockinette sleeves serve as a subtler visual and tactile counterpoint. Worked circularly from the bottom up with raglan shoulder shaping, Bedford is a breeze to knit as it is to wear.

    Current Pattern: v4.0 (English) & v.3.0 (Japanese)

    21 November 2012:

    (Version 2.1): On page 2 (Blueprint) the requirement for a 24″ needle was removed – this sweater can be made without one.

    7 December 2012:

    (Version 3.0): On page 5, second column under Shape Front Neck, the Next Round instruction has been revised to include instructions for breaking yarn and reattaching it.  The new text reads: “Next Round (this is a Raglan Decrease Round): Work as established to the first removable marker for the center stitches, bind off the next (17, 17, 17) (17, 17, 17) (17, 19,19, 19) stitches (removing markers as you encounter them) work as established until you reach BOR marker. Break yarn. With the WS facing you, reattach the yarn at the neck edge. You will now be working back and forth, not in the round.”
