Mossy Marled Raglan

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Choose two colors of fingering weight yarn and hold them together throughout this marled sweater project. The top-down pullover begins with a folded hem in twisted rib. Then moss stitch is worked in the round as you increase with raglan shaping. I used two colors of West Wool Bicycle, a non-superwash merino wool. This soft and lofty fiber produces a super squishy and cozy fabric. The simple stitches and straight forward instructions make this sweater ideal for beginner sweater knitters. Enjoy mixing your yarns together as you knit this comfy sweater.

    Finished Measurements

    Size 5 shown with about 4″ / 10cm of positive ease.

    I recommend selecting a size that is approximately 2 – 4″ / 5 – 10cm larger than your actual chest circumference for a fit with positive ease. For an even more relaxed fit, select a size that is 5 – 8″ / 13 – 20cm larger than your actual chest circumference.
