Winter Rose Sweater ENGLISH


This pattern is in English.

The Winter Rose Sweater is worked top-down with a raglan construction featuring cable braids in the raglan seams. First, the neckline is worked with cables that gradually widen. The yoke is then continued in stockinette stitch with raglan increases around the four raglan cables.

The body is worked in stockinette stitch with two cable panels on each side that extend from the neckline to the hem, finished with a twisted rib edge. The sleeves are worked straight and finished with cables around the cuff. The sweater requires no seaming.

The width of the cable braids varies between sizes to ensure proper fit. Thus, sizes XS and S are very similar, as are M and L, and XL and 2XL. This grading method is used to maintain the design’s aesthetic.
