Yarn Requirements

light fingering or 3 ply wool based fibre ( I used Ashford Tekapo 3 ply, but other light fingering is suitable for example Isager Highland wool / Line Weight by Purlsoho, light Merinotosh by Madelinetosh .

Raglan jumper featuring a wide mock cable ribbing.  The fabric is made with two strands of yarn held together: one strand of 3ply wool and one strand of laceweight silk/mohair blend.  The silk/mohair blend was variegated, while the 3 ply was of a single tone, and this produces a muted variegated effect.  It is designed to be worn with 10-15cm ease.  The bottom of the jumper sits 10cm below natural waist.  Construction Note: The garment is knitted top-down seamlessly.  Initially, the yoke is worked back and forth in rows with shaping the along raglan seams and additional shaping along the front neckline edges.   Stitches are then cast on along the base of the front neckline, and the yoke is then joined in the round.  After raglan shaping the sleeve stitches are held on waste yarn while body is knitted down to the ribbing.   Sleeve stitches are then picked up and the sleeves knitted top-down in the round to the cuff.
