Product description

This collection wouldn’t be complete without a classic, oversized pullover. Michele used two strands of Shelter to achieve a warm and cozy garment with a comfortable A-Line silhouette and luxurious ribbed turtleneck. The raglan yoke makes for a comfortable fit and keeps excess fabric from the shoulder area. The garment is worked from the top-down, allowing for easy customization of Sleeve and Body lengths. This is the type of fast, cozy knit that we always feel like knitting, no matter what the season!

    CONSTRUCTION

    • Yarn is held double throughout, using one strand of each color; holding two strands of Shelter together achieves a chunky gauge, while keeping the resulting fabric light.
    • The sweater is knit from the top down. You will begin by working back and forth to shape the Front Neck, then you will join work into the round for the rest of the yoke.
    • After completion of the raglan yoke, the pullover is divided at the underarm. The Sleeves are completed first, and then the Body is worked. There is a purl stitch along each side of the Body, as a “faux seam”.
    • Stitches are picked up around the neckline, and the collar is worked in the round.


    FINISHED DIMENSIONS

    • 36¼ (39¼, 42¼, 45, 48, 51, 53¾, 56¾)” chest circumference
    • Sample is shown in size 39¼” with +5” of ease on model

    GAUGE

    • 11 stitches & 18 rounds = 4″ in Stockinette Stitch with Gauge Needle, using 2 strands of yarn held together as one (1 strand of each color), both before and after blocking
    • Approximately 4½ stitches = 1″ in 2×2 Ribbing (for Collar), with Gauge needle, relaxed after blocking


    NEEDLES

    • One 16″, 24″, and 32″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed above (Suggested Size: US 11/8 mm)
    • One 16″ circular needle one size larger than Gauge Needle (Suggested Size: US 13/9 mm)
    • Note: DPNs may be eliminated if you prefer to use another method for small-circumference knitting, such as Magic Loop or 2 circulars


  • Pattern Updates

    23 March 2012: 

    The “M1L” and “M1R” instructions under Special Techniques were reversed. Pattern was corrected on this date.


    6 June 2012: 

    The Neck pick-up stitches were changed: “With 16″ circular Gauge needle, 2 strands of yarn held together as one (1 strand of each color), RS of Neck edge facing, and beginning at the back right raglan, pick up and knit 19 (20, 20, 22, 22, 22, 24, 24) stitches along Back Neck, 6 stitches across top of Left Sleeve, 29 (32, 32, 34, 34, 34, 36, 36) stitches along Front Neck, and 6 stitches across top of Right Sleeve. You will have a total of 60 (64, 64, 68, 68, 68, 72, 72) picked-up collar stitches.”


    15 August 2013: (Version 3.0):

    Page 3 under SHAPE FRONT NECK, the final row worked before casting-on center front neck stitches has been corrected to read: “Work Row 3 once. 98 (99, 99, 100, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104) stitches now on needle.”


    15 February 2016: Version 3.1

    On page 3 the following changes have been made: Do not turn work. Cast on (7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10, 11) stitches for Center Front Neck at the end of the row using the Backward Loop method, place a marker of an alternate color to indicate beginning-of-round, then join work into the round so that RS (knit side) faces out.
