This top-down raglan sweater pattern is a must-have. It was written by our own Michelle Porter.
We don’t want to forget basic essentials when we’re posting pattern suggestions for our Bio Shetland promotion. And this one is super-flexibile. Make it in any size, and at any gauge. Make it with long sleeves or short. Give it a turtleneck, or a crew neck, or a scoop neck. Knit it in one colour, or in stripes. Use lots of different colours, or just a few. Add cable details, perhaps down the arms or along the raglan lines. Or use eyelet increases for the raglans, like in this picture, for a really easy tough of elegance.
The possibilities are endless, and a good, basic pattern like this gives you a framework to build on.
The basic pattern is written for aran-weight yarn, but you can hold two strands of Bio Shetland together as a substitute.
We think that BC Garn Bio Shetland makes wonderful, light sweaters. There’s a lot of yardage in those inexpensive skeins, and a lot of warmth in that woolen-spun yarn. So, here’s a raglan sweater pattern to help you make that sweater-to-live-in that everyone needs.
