Bold textured details make a distinctive sweater, worked top-down and seamlessly in warm bulky wool. Compound raglan shaping ensures a good fit for all sizes, and the perfect mid-hip length paired with three-quarter sleeves make a relaxed fit that is easy yet tidy. The reversible textured turtleneck can be worn either standing up or folded over for even more versatility.

Euphony is available as an individual pattern pdf download from my Ravelry store, and also as part of the Side B Collection from Stitch Sprouts.
Knit seamlessly from the top down using raglan construction, in stockinette with a textured broken rib pattern on the wide raglan style lines, deep hem, and sleeve cuffs. Stitches are cast on in the round at the neckline, the front and back neck are shaped with short rows, then the body is worked to the bottom of the armhole. Sleeve stitches are placed on hold while the lower body is worked without shaping to the textured hem. Three-quarter length sleeves are then continued to the matching cuffs. Stitches are picked up for the neckband and worked in reversible broken rib, allowing the collar to be worn either standing up or folded over.
