This easy-to-wear autumn pullover incorporates design elements from 1960s Swedish designer knitwear with a decorative collar that provides additional warmth as well as extra pizzazz.
The body is worked in one piece from the neck down, working short-rows at the back to shape the neckline, then increasing for the sleeves simultaneously until the underarm.
Raglan increases have been calculated for each size individually to improve armhole-body proportions compared to the typical every-other-row increases.
The sleeve stitches are held on waste yarn while the body is worked to the bottom edge. The sleeves are then worked from the top down, before the collar is worked from the bottom up.
A cheeky slipped-stitch pattern is used for a seasonal color effect – no stranding skills required!
