STRAIGHT UP SWEATER BABY ENGLISH
Straight Up Sweater Baby pattern (English)
Straight Up Sweater is a raglan sweater with a delicate stripe structure made from alternating between two yarns of different fibres.
The sweater is knit from the top down with raglan increases. First of the sweater is worked back and forth in order to make the U-shape of the neckline. After shaping the neckline the yoke is worked in the round, until it is divided into body and sleeves, which are finished with a half-twisted ribbing trim. The ribbing in the neck is double layered for a nice finish.
