Olli - Easy mens raglan
A simple raglan sweater to wear over a shirt or with a long sleeved T-shirt for a more relaxed look. The neck is designed not too tight, just right to show off the collar of a nice shirt. Knit in the round and bottom-up, this sweater just needs a minimum of seaming and edging.
This sweater is a fast knit worked on large needles with double stranded yarn. A mix of good quality cotton and soft mohair gives the finished garment a soft touch with a sleek and interesting look.
Pattern is suitable for the beginner/intermediate knitter that has knit, purl skills and is advancing to try raglan decreases AND knitting yourself or your husband/boyfriend/son a really nice garment.
