Lithuania Raglan Pullover with Border Pattern
Pattern includes a visual plan, planning worksheets and step-by-step project sheet to be used to create your personalized pullover.
Yarn: This sweater can be made with any type of yarn. Wool or a wool blend will make a warm winter garment, while a sweater made of cotton can be worn in other seasons as well. As long as the yarn is smooth and comes in the colors you want, it will work well in this design.
Any weight of yarn will work, but for practice I suggest a medium-weight yarn and US size 7 or 8 (4.5 or 5 mm) knitting needles.
Yardage guidelines for various sizes and yarn weights are included in the book on page 20-22.
Knitting needles: size appropriate for chosen yarn:
Circular needle for body: for an adult sweater, at least 29 inches (74 cm) long.
Circular needle for sleeves and neckband: 16 inches (40 cm).
Double-pointed needles (suggested 1 or 2 sizes smaller than primary needles) for cuffs: set of 4 or 5.
Instructions include tips for needles sizes for colorwork areas vs. solid color areas.
Additional supplies: stitch markers and spare needle or stitch holders.
