At first glance, Martine might appear to be a simple raglan, but it is so much more. The all-over knotted stitch creates wonderful texture to a perfectly fitting sweater (extra attention was put into the raglan shaping to ensure this). Worked in a summery cotton chainette yarn (Shibui Rain), Martine can be worn alone in warmer temperatures or layered for additional warmth. Pullover is worked from the bottom-up in pieces, then seamed (a 1-stitch selvedge worked at the side edges makes seaming a breeze). The neckline is picked up and worked circularly.
