Wool Baa

  • $6.00


Level of Difficulty – Intermediate

 

Knitted in one piece with 2 yarns together of Adorn Silky Merino DK, this A-Line sweater has raglan sleeves and is worked from the top down in reverse stocking stitch.  It features a cable that extends up the centre of the sleeves and into the collar and it has side cables in the body of the garment.  Sleeves and the body of the garment are designed to be knitted in the round so that no sewing up (apart from securing loose ends and closing the small opening under the armholes) is required.
