This cosy jumper is what I reach for when I want something to sling on and feel good. The baggy shape allows room for movement whilst providing warmth. The stitch pattern worked for the main fabric is simple and effective whilst cables follow all seams of the raglan jumper. Knit from bottom up in pieces and seamed at the end, adding i-Cord bind offs to the bottom trim and flattering neck line. Wear your Devonia Cream with jeans, high waisted skirts or over smart dresses. Wear the short version with plenty of positive ease for a casual slouchy fit. Or wear the long version with less ease for a smarter elegent feel. Devonia DK by John Arbon Textiles is the perfect long wool for this modern garm.

Using a DK yarn and 3.75mm needles creates a dense and wearable fabric.
