Worked seamlessly from the top down, this V-neck raglan pullover incorporates simple slipped stitches that add subtle texture to an otherwise “plain” stockinette sweater. The slip-stitch pattern is set up in the first 15 rows, which are written out row by row. Once the pattern is established, it’s easy to incorporate it throughout the rest of the sweater. The hem, cuffs, and neckline are finished with simple knit-three-purl-one ribbing that continues the established slipped stitches to the edges.
Two hand-dyed yarns are held together–a laceweight mohair and a fingering weight wool–for a soft and lofty fabric.
The yoke begins by working back and forth in rows to shape the front neck, then joins for working in the round at the base of the V-neck. The yoke is shaped with increases worked on each side of four raglan lines that separate the back, front, and two sleeves.
Row gauge is important for achieving the correct armhole depth.
