The yarn company of the suggested yarn has recently changed its name: from Regenbogenschaf to SKUDDERIA.

Junimond is a top down sweater with 3/4 sleeves which is shaped by a combination of techniques.

It has a Raglan in the back and a round yoke on the front. Short rows with a slip stitch and a 3-stitch flower pattern are used for the back and sleeves and are built into the 12-row-repeat. They do not only create a deep front neck, but they also make the back longer than the front.

If you are into seamless top-down garments, but tired of simple Raglans and ready for a new challenge, this is the one for you!

You need
Main color: 900–1600m, depending on size
Contrast color(s): 150-200m - multicolor yarn creates a nice effect

The sample was knitted in Regenbogenschaf Pinta (hand dyed beautifully on Pascuali Pinta), which is a yarn with sock yardage, but with 20% silk and 20% Ramie (plant fibre) content which makes it drape well.

But you can use any other yarn which knits up with a gauge of 26x36 sts on 10cm in Stockinette.
