New Way is a seamless top-down knitted sweater with a beautiful feminine shape, elongated back and front of the sweater, kimono sleeves, and subtle stripe pattern. Slimming vertical lines are additionally flattering. Construction used in this project is an original variation of classic raglan, easy to modify and adjustable to individual body shape.

Choose your favourite colors in solid fingering weight yarn and follow the stripes sequence given in the pattern, or use your own imagination and create your own stripe sequence, or use only one color in variegated yarn and enjoy the natural lines this construction gives! So many possibilities, only one clever pattern :)
