This pattern is in English.

Welcome To The Jungle Sweater is a classic raglan style sweater with an extra twist. As the pattern is worked using two coloured knitting and double knitting, as described further down, the completed work will have two right sides, where the colours lay opposite to each other. That means 2 sweaters in one.


The sweater is worked from top down. For a nice fitting neckline, which is lower in the front, the beginning will be worked flat knitting over the front, the sleeves and the back. With cast on at the lower neckline in front, the work will be joined and continued in rounds. There will be increases around the 4 raglan seams. After the last increases on the yoke, body and sleeves are divided and each is finished by itself. The finish will be double knitted ribbings. The neckline is finished with a double coloured ribbing, which is folded and connected to the wrong side by knitting.
