A Wool Baa Chunky Polo Sweater

Knitted with 7mm needles and 2 yarns together of Adorn Silky Merino DK, this sweater has deep raglan sleeves and is worked in faux rib stitch (the wrong side worked in rib and the right side worked in garter stitch) with a garter stitch polo neck.  The polo neck collar is worked on 6mm circular needles with 3 yarns together so that it is stiff enough to sit upright on its own.

Designed to be a baggy fit, this garment is simple and quick to create and makes an ideal project for beginner knitters wanting to progress from making scarves to sweaters.
